Milton Melvin Croissant III and Colin Ward give you Mel Gibson and hot dogs. Lots of them.

Nothing says summer like hot dogs, ice cream cones, and Whitney Houston's head exploding into a pile of raw meat. Artist Milton Melvin Croissant III ( and musician Colin Ward (of local outfits Phonebooks and Alphabets) celebrate the end of the season with "Summer Hitz 20XX," a music-video collaboration that surfaced over the weekend. Ward and Croissant's head trips pleasantly align in this happy hyperspace tribute to babies in hot dog costumes, sacred symbols and a lot of pop-culture mutation. Until now, we had no idea the dark side of the moon actually had a three-eyed smiley face on it.
