Back when you were all watching episode the 9th or 10th episode of the Meth Minute, I was already planning episode 39. I knew it had to be epic, touching, and also something that included every character. The 80’s all-star charity video “We Are The World” seemed like a great format for such an episode. Since we started this with a song, I figured we ought to go out with one too.
My friend Scott Zillitto (the voice of James Brown in Sex Machine) seemed like the right man to help compose such a song. He’s a talented musician and a fellow connoisseur of 80’s cheese tunes. He came over one night and we sat at my kitchen table with a Casio and wrote “We Were The Meth Minute”.
Mind you, this is months before the the series was ending, so I had plenty of time to record each cast member singing it. I played everyone’s take and chose whatever line they sounded funniest singing.
Next I had assistant artists Daisy Edwards and Josh Weisbrod study the “We Are The World” video and re-do distinctive scenes with Meth Minute characters and logos. The end result is exactly how I imagined and hoped it would be. So without further ado…”We Were The Meth Minute”
