Matthew Human

While searching for a fun song as the Hempies theme, we found a song by Matthew Human & The Human Revolution that resonated. It was the 2007 Marijuana Music Awards Best Music Video hosted by Tree of Life.

Long time ago!

We found Matthew in Costa Rica and invited him to our party and he said yes! Enjoy the video from 2007 below.
