Music Video: Earl Pickens - "I've Been Everywhere (In Pennsylvania)"

Earlier this year I wrote about the new EP from Earl Pickens, Turn On The Radio, as well as the video for the EP’s (near) title track. That video caught Earl on a zippy overnight trip across 3 state lines (as well as across the GW Bridge) via unicycle. Well, his latest video goes in pretty much the complete opposite direction. It’s a single frame, one-shot deal of Earl playing his classic parody of the Hank Snow & Johnny Cash hit “I’ve Been Everywhere” live on the Mavis L. Honeyduke show in 1952. Yes, this song has been parodied before. No, never this cleverly, especially for those familiar with the mostly very complicated names of Pennsylvania towns. Indeed, Earl has been everywhere (in Pennsylvania):
