Hollywood, CA, September 19, 2011 – Having produced the highly controversial new viral video “Hot Buns,� which promotes the North American Tour of the Foo Fighters, Angela Guice, president of the award winning entertainment marketing and production agency Nucontext Creative, has found herself at the heart of a national controversy. Depicting four of the 5 band members taking a shower, nude, at a truck stop, “Hot Buns� has drawn the wrath of the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church. Dozens of members of that highly vocal church held a rally last Friday (9/16), picketing the Foo Fighters concert which was to be held that night at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO.

Several hours before the concert in Kansas City, the Foos, dressed as “truck drivers,� surprised their fans by unexpectedly appearing on a flatbed truck, performing the song “Keep

it Clean,� live, before the Westboro protestors.

Regarding all the controversy, Guice said, “It’s really unfortunate, but hysterically funny, that some of the ‘haters’ of the world chose to picket against what was clearly meant as a comedic, tongue-in-cheek video produced in the spirit of the Foo Fighters’ off the wall sense of humor. But what is fortunate is that it’s the Westboro Baptist Church lunatics that made the asses of Dave and the other Foo Fighters – along with their message of keepin’ it clean and tolerance for all - infamous!�

Earlier this year, Guice and NuContext produced “This Video Sucks!�, a promotional campaign which aired on the Fuse TV network that served as a call to action by Foo Fighters to aspiring filmmakers—seeking fans to direct their next music videos. Also this year, Guice and NuContext produced two extremely popular music videos promoting Foo Fighters’ 2011 CD release, “Wasting Light.� Those videos were entitled “Rope� and “White Limo.�
