Rockin' Funnies: Lucky For You (Tonight I'm Just Me)(2000)

Even though SheDAISY's hit, "Lucky For You (Tonight I'm Just Me)" deals with a serious subject, multiple personality disorder, otherwise known as schizophrenia, the video produced for the song is a little on the lighter side. The three ladies who make up SheDAISY portray multiple characters in the video (you try figuring out who's who), and whichever one plays the plus-sized customer looks like she got the fat suit from Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who wore a similar costume for the "Learn To Fly" video a year earlier. Some might think that this was the country answer to "Learn", except that the Foo Fighters had the advantage of having Tenacious D (Kyle Gass & Jack Black) as guest stars in a subplot.

"Lucky For You" springs from SheDAISY's VEVO channel:

Actually Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) and schizophrenia are not one in the same. In fact, MPD is slowly being debunked as a true disorder (in part due to revelations about the charade involving Shirley Mason, aka "Sybil").

Schizophenia is one losing contact with reality - hearing voices, hallucinating etc. These are often treated with drugs.

Oh. You'd think I'd have known that, since I have friends who've had psych issues.....!

In the words of Homer Simpson, "D'ohh!".
