Retro Video of the Week: "Big Me" by Foo Fighters

Saturday marks America's 239th birthday and the 20th birthday of the Foo Fighters' self-titled debut album.  It was, of course, Dave Grohl's first post-Nirvana album, and he played nearly all of the instruments on the album.  All in all, it's a pretty fantastic album, and a harbinger of things to come, as Foo Fighters has essentially established itself as the best hard rock band of the last twenty years.

My favorite video from the album, and possibly my favorite Foo Fighters video period, is the video for "Big Me."  It's a parody of the mid-'90s Mentos commercials, and it's spot on.  Happy birthday, America.
