What is the story behind the name Happy Tree?

Jimmi: Weed.

Are you afraid you might get sued by Happy Tree productions, an outdoor, corporate and documentary video production company from Duluth?

Jimmi: Nah were cool, my dad knows that guy.

What about Marco Bottiglieri & Blake Judson, founders of the independent film company of the same name?

Jimmi: I don’t want to talk about that.  I had sex with both of them before they were 18.

Ok, enough of that. How’s life in Plymouth? The Cookie still the hot spot for Friday nights?


Any fun run ins with campus security while filming?

Jimmi: Eugene took us to a rail by his neighborhood in Drochester MA and within the first 45 seconds of being there Marc got stabbed in the ribs 11 times.  RIP

Do people from New Hampshire still hate people from Vermont?

Jimmi: Not if they keep selling us bomb Quayludes.

Does anyone go in the air in your video, or will it be all epic handrails?

Jimmi: Eugene gets pretty high.

Did you unearth any super top secret new handrails in the filming?

Jimmi: We found this big green one at Loon Mountain.  Shhhhhhhhhhh.

How did you guys get sponsored by Alcohol? Who can hold their liquor the best? What about the worst?

Jimmi: We’ve moved on to hard drugs.  It’s a tie between Ty Whelan and Johnny B, Henry and Kara George Both suck at drinking boxed wine.

Who’s part should we be most excited for?

Jimmi: Big Mike.

What do you think makes a good snowboard video?

Jimmi: We just watch skateboarding.

Which other movies are you most excited for this year?

Jimmi: UP IN STOKE, Frontcountry Movie, Recession Proof, Gigli 3.

When will your movie drop and where can people see it?

Jimmi: Come to plymouth state and party and maybe I’ll show you who sock man is.
