Every Moment Of The Suitcase Junket’s Video “Everything I Like” Is Meme Worthy

It’s about road fever…and the best facial expressions ever.

At some point in our lives, we all dream of becoming nomads and dream of stunning panoramic views. The Suitcase Junket shatters that dream and gives us a very authentic portrayal of the life of a nomad in his new video “Everything I Like.” There’s absolutely nothing Instagrammable in the video, BUT it is saturated with meme-worthy moments (just look at that thumbnail). TSJ really captures all the idiosyncrasies, uncooperative weather, craziness, and exhausting drives that you have to put up with as a traveler. But despite its dark humor, there is still an appeal to be moving to new places and soaking on the energy of new people. Watch below:

“Everything I like happens at night is as true a statement about life on the road as I could think up,” shared Matt Lorenz (The Suitcase Junket). “The days can be a long tedious slog, filled with the bizarre static intensity of driving the food desert that is our interstate highway system, but the nights can be so transcendent that all of the crap that filled your day melts away in the alchemy of a lit up stage and a crowd engaged.  Then somebody steals your van.  That’s the way it goes.”

The track is from his upcoming album Mean Dog, Trampoline, which will be out on April 5th. TSJ will hit the road in April in support of the new album, but before we dive into tour dates, THIS should be a meme (we’re thinking ‘when your friend asks you for a bite of your pizza’ or ‘when your boss asks you to check your email on the weekend’):
