Jason Voorhees Finds Teenage Love In "Social Mediasochist"

While spending time redesigning our website and prepping for Halloween season traffic, somehow, we completely missed one of the best music videos of the year, starring Jason Voorhees and just about every slasher icon ever created for film. We were contacted recently by Director/writer Zoran Gvojic about his totally awesome music video homage to slasher films, but more specifically, the John Hughes teen movies.

Zoran directed the slasher romance video for the song “Social Mediasochist”, by Chicago band Common Shiner. The video, created by Zoran and his LowCarbComedy group, has a teenage Jason Voorhees and his friend Freddy Krueger attending Wes Craven’s Slasher High School. The pair try to get Jason to hook up with the most beautiful girl in school. Of course, things don't always go well for Jason and his quest to get the girl, and hijinks with Michael Myers and other slasher villains ensue.

There are a plethora of horror icon references in the music video, such as Jigsaw, Candyman, Leatherface, Pinhead, Leprechaun, and even a fun reference to The Ring with Tamara threatening a boy with a video tape. Jason is the star of the show here, however, and his story of teenage love is fun to watch unfold.

Enjoy the video below and if interested in buying the song, “Social Mediasochist”, part of Common Shiner's album Before They Sold Out Pt. 2, visit their website.
