Brad Nack, known around these parts as a painter of reindeers and other trippy things, the lead singer of The Chart Toppers (are they still around?), and an occasional waiter at Restaurant Roy, recently bared his soul in a YouTube video. We've re-posted it for your pleasure below.

Nack, who apparently left for Australia on Thursday, December 14 (which happens to be the day this is being written), ponders what life might be like if the world refers to him as "Mr. Reindeer," a possibility that may already be tumbling into reality. We follow him through his painting and into the galleries where his work gets displayed, both here and in New York. But why read about it when you can watch it below?
