Is there anything more punk rock than trashing a high-end establishment that so often looks down on you? How about writing a song about an infamous YouTube sensation who drunkenly asked police officers about his "limp penis" after trying to enjoy a "succulent Chinese meal?"

Well, Aussie trio The Chats checked off both boxes for their lastest "Dine N Dash" music video, as it's inspired by the '80s legend Mr. Democracy Manifest.

"The song was actually about the original 'Democracy Manifest' video and originally we were just going to re-create the arrest scene ourselves,“ says vocalist/bassist Eamon Sandwith. "Then our manager and video crew ended up tracking him down."  

Guitarist Josh Price added, "We filmed at Walter's steakhouse in Brisbane. It was the best steak I've had. Definitely gave the bowlsie a run for its money. No mushy gravy though."

To check out The Chats' hilarious new video ahead of the release of their debut album High Risk Behaviour, be sure to look below. Afterward, make sure to pre-order their new record and grab tickets to see the band out on their Noise and Ones To Watch - presented headlining tour.
