Hi all!

I play in a band called Reflected.We're from Hungary, Europe. We've just finished our second album called Paradise Found, and got signed to a Japanese, and a US label.
Here's our myspace: http://www.myspace.com/reflectedpunkrock

So we made a music video for one of the songs. Don't take it too seriously, it's full of sarcasm in an "Offspringish" way..:)
Please read the lyrics before watching in order to understand what you see:

Reflected - PopCorn

I was an average guy, I had an average band
Playing for our friends in the local bars -
It didn't pay my bills, didn't help me to get laid
Soon we figured out it was time to change

Got a new wardrobe
A new haircut
And a brand new sound

Please let me sing you a song,
I'm here to sell it; it was written by someone else
You've heard it before a thousand times
But we're on TV, so it's alright

It's all been done before, but no one gives a shit
'Cause how we're dressed is all they care about
We're going with the flow, but our paycheck says we're right
Your stupidity keeps this band alive

Do not touch that dial
We're coming on
One more time

Please let me...

Just a couple guys, willing to compromise
Wrote my name on the dotted line
We took the easy way and made it to the top
Looking down sure feels fine

I'll be here a couple years
And Hollywood, I'm on my way!

Please let me...

Behold the video itself: http://youtube.com/watch?v=DCWk2AiVfqs

...Oh, I remember you. I said Welcome to California reminded me of a Sum 41 a long time ago (whoa, and you're already my myspace friend). How'd the first album sell?

I'm finding that I usually tend to only reply to amateur musicians like myself, so I don't have much to say to you besides I like it. Haha, let's just hope the mass audience doesn't take the words serious either. Will we be seeing this video in the US?
