Sean Lennon's Anti-Fracking Anthem: "Don't Frack My Mother"

Music: Sean Lennon
Directors: Sarah Sophie Flicker, Maximilla Lukacs and Tennessee Thomas
Video Producer: Rebecca Fernandez
Editor: Maximilla Lukacs

The artists of Artists Against Fracking worked together to create this music video for "Don't Frack My Mother," Sean Lennon's very own anti-fracking anthem. This is the perfect time to celebrate our progress. In case you missed it, the New York State Assembly passed a two-year moratorium on fracking in New York. But this is also the perfect time to keep the pressure up! The bill's not a done deal. It still has to pass the State Senate and then get signed into law by Governor Cuomo.

Here's a list of all the artists who appear in it:
•Adrian Grenier •Alexa Chung •Ben Lee •Carrie Fisher •Daniel Pinchbeck •Devendra Banhart •Fred Armisen •Ione Skye •Joseph Gordon-Levitt •Josh Fox •Liv Tyler •Lindsey Wixson •Maggie Gyllenhaal •Mark Ronson •Melissa Auf Der Maur •Michael Skolnik •Natasha Lyonne •Penn Badgley •Reggie Watts •Sean Lennon •Susan Sarandon •Yoko Ono •ZoĆ« Kravitz And band members from: •Au Revoir Simone •Black Lips •Cibo Matto •The Citizens Band •The Like •The Strokes •Wilco •Wild Belle

Great song! When it started, I thought it was a Bob Dylan song, "The Times They Are A' Changing". The video was wonderful, too. I like cute little Yoko popping up now and then.
