Do we know for sure that “Surf Vietnam” is not, in fact, Ben Folds attempting to revitalize his image or regain some street cred with a new pseudonym? Maybe he figured he’d affect a snarkier ‘tude, sell an ironic $100 8-track that may or may not exist, and nobody would ever ask him to play “Brick” again?” Ha! Nice try! WE’RE ON TO YOU, “SURF VIETNAM,” OR SHOULD WE SAY, “BEN FOLDS?!?!?” “SHEEE’S A BRICK AND I’M DROW-NIN’, SLOWLLLYYYYY!!!” SING IT, YOU SON OF A BITCH!
