Okay we'll have a little bit of that music video but let's talk about the concept of I mean if somebody who works in TV and found women.
When you approaching music video where were you telling with -- Well.
You know you don't want it to be too literal and you want to be kind of visually arresting or whatever there's so much visual medium -- to try to get people to listen to the song so I I hooked up in the sky Brandon -- -- was -- great visual artist.
He had this idea for the video of just.
Kind of weird Thanksgiving dinner.
And we did that -- built all our own tracks for the cameras and it's amazing what you can do digitally now I think it turned out pretty nice and a little odd which I like.

Well I directed 12 seasons ago and then one season.
Five and then I'm doing one this coming season six -- -- -- always been interested in and they really encouraged it -- set I was always hang around asking questions.
This and that I did my time in the editing room -- followed certain directors and it's been just a great.
Experience to do it because they're so welcoming and when you know everybody gets a lot easier I don't know what it would be like going into a strange situation doing it I think it turned out well.
Yes I can imagine the feedback from your costar loses the most important to you as well -- They're a little rough on me but I have a good sense of humor about it so I'm we have a good time.
Okay you a lot of comments online on the street just people talking about what they hope is gonna happen with these characters in the show I mean what's.
What do you get asked the most.
I get constantly asked about Cooper Charlotte my character Cooper and his TV wife Charlotte people are very invested in that relationship.
They have ten year old son now that they didn't know they have from Cooper.
I could -- a previous relationship you -- -- had the sun so there's a lot of what's gonna happen with Cooper in Charlotte and then there is of people are very invested in the characters so.
I get it quite a bit more often and I would think -- landowner and give them any answers.
Very very rarely mostly because I don't -- know what's gonna happen almost week to week which is one of the fun parts about.
Being on a show like this but I I try to give them what they have a try to be as honest to give them as much information as I can but -- I'm kind of in the dark myself.
Yeah you're resident also includes ER inscribed scenario AM licensed TV doctor -- You have an abundant -- an -- Nile engine.
I -- I have all I've just enough medical knowledge to terrify you because it's always he's crazy strange diseases and I can't really solve anything I just know that.
Very strange things happen whenever I'm on my TV show and I'm I'm playing a doctor.
I can imagine yes so maybe it works while at cocktail parties and you can just throw out these -- turn -- it does.
