US Flags in video for Dennis Leary's Song A-hole 1993

In 1993 the US flag made several spotlight appearances in Dennis Leary's official video Asshole. Using a charmingly jaded humor, Leary pokes fun at the American Dream with this song.

Leary is a comedic master at delivering over the top ranting reverse sarcastic humor that seems offensive and mean, but often comes with a positive and hopeful message, sometimes.

The video opens with a vain display of self absorption.  Several table top US flags lay next to silicone chest augmentations.

Here Dennis parodies a scene from the film Patton 1970, about what he thinks America should do to get itself back in a proper patriotic posture.  However the priest thinks General Leary is  going too negative and falling off the deep end.

Dennis Leary makes good upon his word by exercising his freedom by wiping his mouth, or maybe his nose, with the American flag.  Notice that there are several half eaten cheeseburgers in the windshield, presumably from McDonald's that were apparently packaged in the old fashioned non-biodegradable Styrofoam containers.
