UPDATE: check out our exclusive interview with Reggie White and Adrian Anchondo!

You know what’s braver than Beyoncé taking a risk with her experimental album release strategy? Filming a sexy nighttime music video at Ocean Beach. Bay Area artists Reggie White and Adrian Anchondo braved the frigid waters to elevate Queen B’s “Drunk in Love” into a parody about being in a long distance relationship with Dunkin’ Donuts. Genius lyrics include: “I want you on the west coast / Dunkin, I want you right now / Can’t take my eyes off that sausage patty, I want you / Open all niiiiight.”

If you’re an East Coast ex-pat or just someone who’s visited your friend in Brooklyn, you know the sting of longing after those Munchkin donuts. Now we have the perfect anthem for our struggle!
