WATCH: Matt Zarley's 'Trust Me' Video
Matt Zarley's career began at age 12 while dancing with Tony the Tiger in a Kellogg’s "Frosted Flakes" commercial. He's since gone on to do Broadway, TV, and been a singer-songwriter for years. His high-energy dance music has always been a hit with progressive music fans, people who find no shame in living for a pulse-pounding beat (as in gays, club goers, and folks outside the US).
His last video "WTF" was a cheeky number about a cheating spouse, and it was filled with incredibly snacky boys. His latest work, "Trust Me," takes on the hypocrisy of politics and American culture. It's still highly dancable and loaded with hot guys and fun choreography (plus a bunch of 1970's-style porn references), but if you listen to the words there's more to this vid than meets the eye. As the clip description asks, "Is America really ready for a gay President?"
