Music video[edit]

The video for Drunken Butterfly was directed by Stephen Hellweg, the winner of a 120 Minutes contest for fans to send in videos for any song on Dirty. The video is puppets and dolls made up to look like Sonic Youth performing the song onstage. They also showed clips from fan vids of Swimsuit Issue (a bunch of shirtless men) and Nic Fit (someone running around in a field, then holding up a flaming stuffed animal). This video was featured in The Brothers Grunt episode "If I Could Grunt to the Animals."
