Pikahsso, Picnic and Tahiti of PPT just posted their latest music video onto YouTube, and the Hal Samples-shot video version of the track "When We Was Kool" is flat-out phenomenal. Check it out:

(It helps that it's a killer song, too.)

The timing of this video's release is a bit weird, considering that the track is off PPT's 2006 debut release, Tres Mondos In Love and that the band's about to drop it's next disc, Denglish, on April 15. But hey, we're not complaining--we like this track and video too much. Nice job, fellas.

(Interesting note: According to Erv Karwelis of Idol Records, the final touches to video were still being applied last night. Hours later, it's up on YouTube with over 100 views already--without any promotion. Talk about a quick turnaround.

Oh, and if you're interested in seeing the behind-the-scenes clip about shooting this video, we've got that, too, after the jump.) -- Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
