|TISM singles chronology|
"Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me" is a song by the Australian alternative rock band TISM. It was the only single off The White Albun (2004). The single wasn't released commercially in Australia. It was, however, distributed to Australian radio stations, and signed copies were made available to fans attending the Popcorn Taxi session with the band in 2004 (hosted by John Safran). The real names of the TISM members are revealed on the back of this single.
Adrian Ringin of MediaSearch felt it was "a decent song, not the greatest song in the world, and isn’t even the greatest TISM song in the world – or this album."
TISM held a competition for the general public to create a music video for the track, which was won by Bernard Derriman. After the video became popular via the internet, 2005 saw the single's commercial release in Germany; which peaked in the country's top 100 singles chart.
The remix by Laurence Maddy is called the Radio Edit on the promo CD and simply Remix on the German maxi single.
Perhaps better known is the Flash animation by Bernard Derriman, which features the song. The video was chosen from a multitude of entrants in a competition. The winning entry was a cartoon featuring rabbits with numbers printed on their chests, which indicate the number of times this particular rabbit has had sex. The main bunny wears the number 1, hence the song. Other rabbits of various ages and appearances are shown, some with surprisingly high numbers. Most versions of the video feature a buxom female bunny wearing the number 1,718, and in the Radio Edit's video, a male rabbit with a jaded expression and a horseshoe moustache (possibly meant to be a porn star) claims an impressive 10,419. Despite the singer's lament, one bunny is shown who has had even less sex: the rabbit who plays the keyboard solo, wearing a balaclava (as TISM did while performing) and bearing a number of 0.
At the end of the video, when a chorus of bunnies emerges, all singing the final chorus, asking "Does everybody else get that feeling?," one is presented tongue-in-cheek with the number 3.5 on his chest. This is followed by scenes of the main rabbit posing in suggestive or comedic positions, ending with the rabbit in tears.
