Toby Keith Releases "Red Solo Cup" Video To Capitalize On Slate Coverage

Clearly attempting to capitalize on the popularity of Slate's red Solo cup coverage, Toby Keith has now released a video for his epic anthem "Red Solo Cup." Keith introduced the song into his live set only within the past couple of weeks. This new video adds a cinematic dimension, enlivening what was already a delightful ode to inebriation and single-serve plasticware. Even the presence of Earth's worst two people (by which of course I mean Carrot Top and Roger Clemens) cannot stop the fun. Proceed to party, Toby Keith. Proceed to party.
