Trampled by Turtles teamed up with the Media Arts department to create the official music video for “Midnight on the Interstate” (now at over a million views and nearly 5k likes).
During Spring 2020, Professor Kurt Paulsen and students came together to create another video–this time for Trampled by Turtles’ lead singer, David Simonett’s solo debut. The album earned a write-up by Rolling Stone.
