Act of Being Polite Trailer (1980)

01 January 1980 1 mins

After gaining notoriety for their burn-it-down deconstructionist covers of popular hits (including songs by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and James Brown), the anonymous Residents produced their own insincere iteration of a Top 40 chart. The second of their "One Minute Movies," was ACT OF BEING POLITE, a hazy moment of relationship turmoil between a man and a woman with the iconic Residents eyeballs for heads. - Tom Fritsche
