Abigail Stauffer and Rap For Food video spoofs Taylor Swift in praise of local food
By Jessica Webster
A still from Abigail Stauffer's"We Are Never Ever Eating Bad Together," a video celebrating local, healthy food.
Wearing "local celebrity" T-shirt and her signature dreadlocks, local singer-songwriter Abigail Stauffer is featured in a new video celebrating healthy foods. The video, filmed at several local locations, including a hoop house and the Ann Arbor Farmers Market, also features local hip hop food activist Lucas DiGia, who performs under the monicker Rap For Food.
The song, "We are Never Ever Eating Bad Together" is a take-off on Taylor Swift's breakup song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," and features lyrics like "we could eat all kinds of ancient grains instead of wheat."
Local food producers, facilitators and activists make cameo appearances in the video, including Selma Cafe's Lisa Gottlieb, Locavorious owner Rena Basch, and Shannon Brines from Brines Farm.
