Judd Apatow-Executive Produced Video for Loudon Wainwright's 'I Had A Dream' Debuts on Funny or Die
Throughout his career, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Loudon Wainwright III has occasionally turned his attention to current events, “Social Studies” (1999) and “10 Songs for the New Depression” (2010) for example. This year’s primary season has once again given him something to (ruefully) sing about, so, acting like a one-man Super PAC, he’s rushed to write, record, and release his broadsided stumpsong. Titled "I Had A Dream," the song explores what it would be like if Donald Trump won the presidency. Upon completing the song, Wainwright enlisted famed director Judd Apatow to executive produce the video which premiered today on Funny or Die, co-directed by Myles Kane and Marc Philippe Eskenazi.
