The World’s Gone Nutz
The world is one giant mess right now. We might as well hand it over to the squirrels.
From writer, director, and musician Daniel Robert Cohn, created a four-minute music video titled The World’s Gone Nutz with catchy lyrics relating to the craziness of current events.
In this weird and zany music video, Cohn created a fun parody starring with a cast of only squirrels in the performance and with animation. The video was created during the pandemic.
“It brought back all the creativity and imagination that I had as a child,” said Cohen in a statement. “I was building human-sized squirrel hands with materials from craft shops, and compositing them onto the squirrels. Every day was a new challenge and a new adventure.

Current event topics covered in the song ranged from stock exchanges, 2020 presidential election, Fox News to fake news, and obviously—the pandemic with masks and lack of toilet papers.
He used these squirrels in his backyard as a comical cast of characters since no actors and no crew were available at the time.
This week, the music video was screened on the big screen at the Dances with Films festival. It made the world’s film festival circuits that included World London Film Festival, Prague Indie International Film Festival, Holiday 365 Film Festival, and the Emberlight Festival in Michigan. Recently, it won the “Best Micro Short” at the Antolia International Film Festival.
The director is selling Squirrel Me Bad merchandise, in which proceeds are donated to non-profit organization Empowered by Light that invests in communities on the front lines of climate change, loss of wildlife, and environmental devastation. Visit www.squirrelmebad.com for more information.
With most of the world’s social distancing, we can all still enjoy the music video on the small screen.
