In case you haven't heard, New Wave band, Devo, will be releasing the single, "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)", a track about Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s infamous 1983 road trip in which he transported the family dog from Massachusetts to Ontario in a kennel strapped to the roof of the family station wagon.
The song comes as Devo founder and commercial director Gerald V. Casale launches the Remember Seamus campaign, which is designed to help “make 2012 the year where animals like Seamus are valued and honesty is praised.” The band also is backing Dogs Against Romney.
Casale also appears to be involved in “The Crate Escape: Seamus Unleashed,” a new mobile app/game for smartphones that, according to its Facebook page, “lets Seamus get revenge against his arch enemy Mitt Romney” and which is set for release on Aug. 26 — National Dog Day.
Casale told the The Rolling Stone: “This isn’t a red-state thing or Devo stumping for Obama,” he says. “But I think any animal lover that hears the story will learn so much about the character flaw of Romney. It’s just a deal-breaker about the man. My God, the world is a scary place with seven billion people. What you want in a leader is a guy with some humanity at his core. I just don’t feel that Mitt does.”
Whether you are a supporter of Mitt Romney or not I would like 2012 to be the year that animals like Seamus are valued and praised and I'm sure you we can all agree to that, right?
