Groundbreaking and Hilarious new Music Video Blurs the Line Between Romance, Art and Plastic Surgery.

Set for a Valentine’s Day release, the world’s first nose job love song, begs the question “How far would you go for love?”

Would you risk your life? Would go under the knife? Would you fly to Miami and let an eccentric plastic surgeon, whom you have never met, permanently alter your face?

No? Well then L.E. (Doug) Staiman from the Jewish Punk Rock group The Groggers has got you beat! Weeks ago L.E. and his band had begun to write new material for their second album. Little did The Groggers know that simultaneously Dr. Michael Salzhauer, a renowned Miami plastic surgeon and author of the controversial children’s book ‘My Beautiful Mommy’, had discovered them and fallen in love with their musical stylings and lyrical gall.

Inspired to become involved, he challenged the band to write a song about rhinoplasty and film a music video that would be centered around the transformation. L.E. was skeptical at first and utterly terrified when the doctor went a step further and offered free nose jobs for the entire band. When the other band members refused to donate their faces for the sake of art, L.E. rose to the occasion and placed his nose on the proverbial chopping block. This highly reckless decision was sure to secure The Groggers their place in music history by being the first band ever to have a member undergo elective surgery for the sole purpose of a music video. On January 9th 2012, this ridiculous dream became a ridiculous reality and Staiman found himself under Dr. Salzhauer’s steady knife.

In keeping with the band’s knack for controversy, parody and irreverence, Jewcan Sam (A Nose Job Love Song) depicts a romantically hopeless boy and his unattainable love obsession. After concluding that his sizable schnoz is the source of his despair, ‘Doug’ sets out on a quest to surgically transform himself into the Prince Charming he is sure will win her heart. Amazingly, the first part of the video was actually shot the night before the surgery and the second half was shot just six days after the procedure.

Does Pinocchio finally get Snow White? You’ll have to watch the video to find out. Once this infectious tune gets stuck in your head you’ll surely want to hear more about this outrageous story.
