Hater Jesus by Everclear

I am really digging this new humorous music video called “Hater” featuring an “alternative” version of Jesus Christ.

The band Everclear has dedicated it to "Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and all others who hate in the name of Jesus."

The video was shot in Portland, Oregon, where I recognized two main landmarks.

One is Hung Far Low, a historical Chinese restaurant in Portland’s old Chinatown.

The other one is Magic Garden.

Many people have confused Magic Garden as a Chinese restaurant, since it is located near Chinatown and there is a Chinese Garden not far from there.

Magic Garden is actually a really neat bar with female strippers.

Unlike the stereotypical stripper clubs, where patrons are pestered with private dances and minimum amount of drinks, Magic Garden is more of a bar than a stripper club. The naked ladies in the background are just there as a bonus.

Although in this video, Jesus still had his crown of thorns, stigmata, wooden cross, turning water into wine, I find some of his new qualities very refreshing.
