New Cake video serves up a tasty tribute

Cake’s ‘The Winter’ video

Iconic Sacramento band Cake recently invited fans to participate in the making of a video for its song “The Winter” by sending in clips of themselves singing the tune. The result is a sweet montage of more than 170 people, ages 5 to 55 from 20 countries and 165 different cities—including Sacramento, of course. It’s not the first time the band’s yielded the spotlight: The 2001 “Short Skirt/Long Jacket” video featured random people on the street listening to the single on headphones. The latest clip, however, is a real testament to the band’s enduring career. Here, the band members make a few cameos, but the real fun here is watching Cake aficianados pay tribute to one of their favorite bands.
