The Bunny Boy is a man desperately reaching out for help in locating his lost brother. He has decided to create videos in his secret room, his personal sanctuary, and post them online in the hopes that someone will reach out and help him.
The series is a vast psychological mystery, at once frightening and empathic. Viewers will feel apprehension and sympathy for this strange character as he disjointedly reveals clues to his brother’s disappearance. The videos are also filled with the Residents’ characteristic dark humor.
The album The Bunny Boy is a collection of songs based on events from the video series. Sonically is it similar to recent releases such as Demons Dance Alone and Tweedles, with wonderful synthetic textures; musically it is very upbeat, very catchy, very enjoyable, with many ideas condensed into each composition; vocally the Singing Resident is featured on every track, backed up with very creative chorus structures; lyrically it tells a story of sadness and madness, of confusion and delusion, of helpless fear.

The Bunny Boy represents The Residents in top form in terms of storytelling, psychological exploration, and bizarre-yet-catchy melodies. It breaches pop music in a most twisted fashion, and the mysterious clues of The Bunny Boy’s inner sanctum truly blur the line between fiction and reality. In this respect, it seems to be one of the most personally revealing projects in the Residents’ career.
MVD Entertainment Group (formerly Music Video Distributors, Inc) was formed by Tom Seaman in 1987. Seaman entered the music business in the early 1960s with Manhattan music retail landmark the Record Hunter, and later worked with Sam Goody, CBS Retail and JEM Distribution. While merchandising early Video Discs in the 1980s Seaman recognized the potential for the Music Video format. His belief of “why just hear the music when you can see it AND hear it” led to the formation of Music Video Distributors, a specialist in carrying the best selection of music videotapes and ultimately DVD. Ed Seaman joined the family business in 1989 and is currently C.O.O. and General Manager of MVD.
In the last 10 years, MVD has transitioned from being a one stop/wholesaler for Music Video to a leading Distributor and Label for Music Video on DVD. Some of the artists MVD has worked with include Sublime, Pixies, Bad Brains, Devo, The New York Dolls, Iggy Pop, the MC5, Dead Kennedys, Danzig, Marillion, Ween, Shane MacGowan, Stryper, Johnny Winter, and much more. Labels on MVD’s roster include Metal Mind, Inakustik, Sexy Intellectual, Cherry Red, Video Service Corp, Disconforme, and many more. Since 1999, MVD has released over 1500 titles, and was the second largest producer of Music DVD in 2007.
In 2006, MVD entered the CD Distribution business with the formation of MVD Audio. “For years our suppliers pushed us to carry CD,“ said Ed Seaman. “They were very happy with our performance with their DVDs and in 2006 we made the leap. The CD business is still a multibillion dollar industry, and we have found a great deal of success with the format already. This new venture with Big Daddy Music shall further stake our claim in the music business, and we anticipate great things from the catalog and new releases of Big Daddy’s labels. Burt Goldstein’s experience and expertise in the music business are a tremendous benefit as well; I believe that we have the opportunity together to equal a lot more than the sum of our parts.”
Tom Seaman, CEO of MVD, says “Growth is an important aspect of our business; we have grown from VHS distribution, to DVD licensing and distribution; now CD’s enter our business umbrella. We are also expanding our digital sales aggressively. We welcome Big Daddy to the MVD fold!”
By joining forces, the group will combine their diverse expertise and flexible distribution infrastructure in order to provide the labels, artists and customers with a higher level of service than ever before.
