PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS are pleased to unveil the official new video for "Choosing Mental Illness" from their Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue full-length released earlier this year via Anselmo's own Housecore Records. Directed by Katherine Richardson-Anselmo with director of photography Mike Holderbeast and starring Michael St. Michaels (The Greasy Strangler), the six-plus-minute clip pays tribute to Milos Forman's 1975 drama, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

Issues Anselmo, "This video is based on one of my favorite films about the harshness of mental illness. Being up close and personal with the struggle, I often feel like R. P. McMurphy, who I play in the clip.

I've had a lot of questions about the LP title, Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue and song title, "Choosing Mental Illness"," he continues, "but make no mistake, I take mental illness very seriously, especially because it often goes untreated. We've taken some extra steps at the end of the video with information that you, or someone close to you might need.

On a lighter note, it's always a blast to do creative things like the video with my band, crew, and family. Bringing Michael St. Michaels into the fold was like having your favorite wacky uncle over for the holidays! He did a great job as our version of Nurse Ratched and he's an absolutely lovable and talented guy...go see The Greasy Strangler!"
