Just announced! You've seen the videos on YouTube...now see the documentary everyone will be buzzing about! Rock-a-Fire Explosion at the 15th annual Austin Film Festival with director Brett Whitcomb in attendance.
"The Rock-a-fire Explosion" is the story of a small town car salesman, a struggling inventor, and an animatronic rock band, that quickly becomes an eccentric portrait of childhood memories, broken dreams, and the resilience of the human spirit. With the closing of Showbiz Pizza in the early 90s, and the subsequent removal of The Rock-a-fire Explosion, a small but determined group of fans persisted with their hopes of reviving their fallen obsession. It wasn’t until 2007, with the resurgence of the Rock-afire Explosion on YouTube with songs like “Miss New Booty,” “Hey There Delilah,” and “Love in This Club,” that the animatronic band found its way back into the public consciousness. Chris Thrash, a car salesman from Phenix City, Alabama who recently purchased a Rock-afire Explosion, has led the charge with his inventive programming and clever song choice.
