Watch: GWAR Invade Richmond!

Frontman Oderus Urungus -- and his giant codpiece – takes to the streets for a SPIN photo shoot.

For SPIN’s November issue, readers are given a glimpse inside the phantasmagoria that is GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus’s normally private “slave pit.” But even alien thrash metal maniacs like to get out sometimes — and when the codpiece-wearing cretin took a stroll through the streets of Richmond, Virginia, we were there, filming.

“Cars were stopping and people were coming up and asking to have their photo taken with him,” says SPIN associate photo editor Jennifer Edmondson, who shot the footage. “After about ten minutes we had to go back inside because the attention was getting overwhelming.”

What? Haven’t the good people of Richmond seen a grotesque alien with a two-foot long weiner wander through the streets of their city before?
