Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 12, 2007
Todd Fritsch's fans are getting the first look at his debut video, "What's Wrong With Me," this week. In a unique marketing move, Diamond Music Group quietly posted the country singer's video online at Todd's MySpace and official websites. Fans responded to the sneak preview with over 4000 downloads in the first few hours of its release. The fast-paced, action-packed, hilarious video features baseball's superstar pitcher Roger Clemens and country legend Eddy Raven.
The "cattle call" auditions for "What's Wrong With Me" were handled via MySpace and hundreds of All Fritsched Up fans emailed Todd immediately. Several were chosen, although professional actors from Houston and Austin were cast in the lead roles. The three-day filming took place at half a dozen locations in and around Fritsch's hometown of Fayetteville, Texas in mid-December. Roger "The Rocket" Clemens makes his appearance with a split-finger fastball that sends Todd into the dunking booth at the historic Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Frelsburg, Texas. During the big party scene (filmed at the world-famous Russ Allen Ranch "Party Barn"), Eddy Raven portrays a Mad Chef who steals the ladies and serves up a mean rubber chicken.
Director Robby Springfield and Director of Photography Steve Childress helped Fritsch capture the "small town Texas" feel that he wanted, and Todd's friends, family and fans can be seen throughout the piece. "It was a blast," says Todd, who performed his own stunts for the video.
"What's Wrong With Me" is from Todd's upcoming CD on Diamond Music Group/Spinville Records, and can be seen at http://www.myspace.com/toddfritsch and http://www.toddfritsch.com. High resolution photos available upon request.
