We know you’ve been waiting for it, so here it is: your annual video assault for the Gathering of the Juggalos. The Psychopathic Records and Insane Clown Posse fan event has gained national attention, not only for the antics of the loyal followers of the festival, but also for its promotional materials alone. Saturday Night Live has parodied the commercials that come in the form of infomercials. Fans get to see their beloved band members as news anchors, giving a play-by-play preview of the event pegged as a “family reunion” for Juggalos taking place August 7 – 11. And while we’d mentioned that Soulfly will be playing, now you can find out way, way more about the Gathering than you’d quite possibly wanted to.
ICP is not mincing any words in this video, even following gang allegations associated with the band and their fans when the FBI listed them as a gang to watch in 2011. ICP retaliated with plans to sue the bureau. But the clown troop still promises to support the other performing artists, watching from the audience “shirtless, drunk and high” as musicians, wrestlers and comedians take the stage. If you can get through the 28-minute video, you will have no problem getting through the festival because you are a true Juggalo. If you are still thirsting for more visual pleasure from the band, Insane Clown Posse Theater premieres July 24 on the Fuse Network. Check out the infomercial below.
