“Chad” Is A Satirical Homage To The Season 3 Character We All Love To Hate (Music Video)

“Chad” is a satirical homage to the Season 3 character we all love to hate, Deputy Chad Broxford. The song —based on Michael Jackson’s “Bad,” and written and performed by Seattleite Steve Lange— was commissioned and co-produced by Karl Reinsch, who’s also the man to thank for getting Twin Peaks Day officialized in North Bend and Snoqualmie, WA, last year.

The entertaining music video, which includes a dancing log, a break-dancing Dr. Jacoby/Amp and even a John Pirruccello cameo, was shot at several of the show’s filming locations up in the Pacific Northwest. It premiered last weekend at the 2018 Twin Peaks UK Festival in London and today, Welcome to Twin Peaks is presenting its online debut.

To be enjoyed over lunch with a bowl of garmonbozia!

Chad (Lyrics)

YOU BEST BACK OFF
THIS LUNCH IS MINE
YOU EAT DONUTS HERE
LIKE ALL THE TIME
I’M TELLING YOU
BETTER COUNT YOUR DAYS
CUZ I’VE GOT ROOM
FOR TWO ENTREES (AND)
GAR-MON, GAR-MON
GARMON-BO-ZE-A

ALL RIGHT?

I’M RUNNING THINGS
HERE AT THE JAIL
DON’T SNITCH ON RICHARD
OR I’LL STEAL YOUR MAIL
SO RUN AND TELL
ALL THE FREAKS
THAT I’M THE LAW
HERE IN TWIN PEAKS

IF THEY SAY IT’S ANDY BRENNAN,
I CAN TELL YOU THAT THEY’RE WRONG
HE AIN’T NO KIND OF POLICEMAN,
NOW LET ME SING MY SONG

Because I’m Chad, I’m Chad, shamone
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
You know I’m Chad, I’m Chad, you know it
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
You know I’m Chad, I’m Chad, shamone, you know
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
Got no sympathy for PTSD,
Just to tell you once again who’s Chad

THAT GUM YOU LIKE
AIN’T BACK IN STYLE
I’LL CHEW ON THAT
SO  DON’T YOU SMILE
AIN’T GOT NO WIFE,
I LIVE ALONE
MY ONLY FRIEND
IS MY PINE CONE
DON’T WANNA HEAR,
NO TALKIN’ LOGS
DICK’S LONGER THAN
WALLY’S MONOLOGUE

DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR VISIONS
OR WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR DREAMS
IF YOU’RE ASKIN’ ME, CHAD BROXFORD
THE OWLS ARE EXACTLY WHAT THEY SEEM

Because I’m Chad, I’m Chad, shamone
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
You know I’m Chad, I’m Chad, you know it
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
You know I’m Chad, I’m Chad, you know it, you know
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
And I wouldn’t take that shit off of her,
Just to tell you once again who’s Chad

TRIED TO ESCAPE FROM PRISON
SO I COULD GET OUT OF THIS PLACE
BUT THE SCHMUCK WHO WEARS THAT GREEN GLOVE
MADE THAT CELL DOOR HIT MY FACE

Because I’m Chad, I’m Chad, shamone
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
You know I’m Chad, I’m Chad, you know it
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
You know I’m Chad, I’m Chad, you know it, you know
(Chad, Chad, really, really Chad)
And I’ll eat in the conference room when I want,
Just to tell you once again, WHO’S CHAD?
