she liked Imaginary Men best of all

Rattlesnakes and Romance


So first there was this Cowboy shot from The Killers new Christmas song. Then THIS came out:


And whatever is going on in this video has sparked an entire TV pitch for a Western from Jill and I! Can’t you see it? Brandon as a card-playing gentleman (named Duke, obviously) who loses his lady love when she’s shot by a vengeful grifter from his poker table – called The Kid (of course.) And so he must go avenge her death with his pal RifleRonnie there. Each week they search out the Bad Guys in the Wild West and get tied to cactuses and have shoot-outs and ward off slutty saloon girls because they’re on a mission and they sleep under the stars with their horses until they find justice 😉

And when The Kid and his posse dare show their ugly faces in town again, why these boys have their guns at the ready for a shoot-out at sundown in the town square. Mark is totally the Sheriff who “turns the other cheek” when frontier justice is served and Dave runs the saloon in town where all the poker playin’ and shootin’ of lady loves goes down.


You can download the song here, and you should do it because it’s for Bono’s Red charity so it’s a good cause and because you wouldn’t want to disappoint Bono now, would you?

And here’s the video which is CLEARLY a pilot for Rattlesnakes and Romance! (“Coming this fall, to NBC!”)

  1. This would be so sweet if it was on Thursday nights on NBC!! Best night of TV EVER! Honestly, they can just hire us to write episodes. Bran and Ronnie will just show up and be sexy and cool. Dave and Mark can maybe pick up some acting classes in the meantime. And Bono can fund the whole thing. How easy is that?

    I just love how the video is simply perfect and funny and shows off how awesome these guys are. And that Brandon is really fucking pretty. And that Ronnie can work a rifle. And that I wish Sam’s Town threw a Cowboy Christmas Ball every year!

    The only thing I miss from this video-burros. Obviously 😉

  2. You know the twenty million times he is looking at the camera and singing? He is OBVIOUSLY singing to me. Hot Damn! That boy is pretty!
