LOS ANGELES (October 20, 2015) – New bad-ass comedy rap video and song, LITTLE DUDE ANTHEM, premieres today, October 20th on YouTube (http://youtube.com/BenGirouxTV), delivering a giant-sized call to arms for short guys everywhere. LITTLE DUDE ANTHEM comes from height-challenged actor/creator BEN GIROUX, joined by indie hip-hop artist JENSEN REED, and American Idol star TAMYRA GRAY.
Giroux is fed-up playing elves, leprechauns, and jockeys on television, explaining, “LITTLE DUDE ANTHEM is a rallying cry for all the little dudes, as well as a big middle-finger to the roles I’ve been typecast in.”
Giroux first came up with the concept for LITTLE DUDE ANTHEM five years ago. In order to convert his stand-up comedy act into a rap, Giroux teamed-up with hip-hop artist Jensen Reed, known for his album “The Left Coast” and collaborations with YouTube star Taryn Southern. The duo spent the next six months writing the original song and composing the track. During this time, Giroux starred in a play with singer Tamyra Gray (American Idol Season One finalist) and immediately knew she was the perfect vocalist for the song’s rhythmic choruses.
For the video, Giroux and Reed called upon a few more friends to help, including: cinematographer Matthew Roe (DP for Michael Jackson, Linkin Park, Moby), actor David Mattey (Better Call Saul), supermodel and Miss Paraguay Nicole Huber, choreographer Morgan Larson (Teen Beach Movie franchise), beat boy Gev Manoukian (So You Think You Can Dance finalist) and dancer Caitlynn Lawson (So You Think You Can Dance finalist).
Currently, fans will recognize Giroux for his recurring roles as ‘Little Zach’ on the CW’s popular Hart of Dixie and as ‘Dark Warrior’ on Disney XD’s teen comedy, Mighty Med. In addition, he has appeared in guest roles on dozens of shows, including Bones, House, Psych, Anger Management, 2 Broke Girls, Henry Danger, Sam & Cat and more. Giroux has also gained notoriety for starring-in and producing a variety of popular YouTube projects, creating the FML channel (FMLvideoguys) with cult-favorite “fail” videos and serving as executive producer of the FRED YouTube Channel (2.3 million subscribers).
Now under his Small Red Cape production banner, Giroux is focused on acting and directing for his own channel http://youtube.com/BenGirouxTV, including his long-running web series, SH*TTY DATES.
Giroux and Reed look forward to their next insane collaboration.
