Okilly Dokilly Posts New Music Video “Reneducation” Online

Viral sensations Okilly Dokilly – the world’s only “Nedal” band – recently announced the release of their upcoming second full-length album, entitled Howdilly Twodilly, scheduled for release on March 29th, 2019.

Today, after releasing the “Reneducation” single and announcing their upcoming Howdilly Twodilly Tourdilly (kicking off in April), Okilly Dokilly has revealed the new music video for “Reneducation”. You can check it out below.

In the Nick Mills-directed video, Head Ned does his best to educate a class of ho-diddly-opeful future Neds, only to come face to face with a very unruly student. Said student learns quickly – you don’t mess with Ned!

Head Ned says about the video: “The ‘Reneducation’ music video is a visual illustration of proper ‘Reneducation’. We’ve very excited to add some video content to our global lesson plan. We’re also very excited to show the process of what happens when ‘Reneducation’ is rejected.”
