Controversial and mysterious Catman Cohen has released his third music video, PRAYER FOR AMERICA, and it is proving to be his most inflammatory to date. The song, PRAYER FOR AMERICA, is from Catman Cohen's first CD entitled, "HOW I WANT TO DIE: the Catman Chronicles 1."

According to PR spokesperson, Ms. Vicky Asher, at least two websites have refused to carry the video on account of its extremely dark portrayal of the nation, including some fairly stunning footage that portrays a variety of celebrities and politicos in a harsh light.

"Personally, I have a more upbeat view of the USA," stated Ms. Asher, "but I will defend my client's right to express his viewpoints. I am a little surprised by the degree of outrage expressed over a little six minute video."

Ms. Asher further stated, "I do believe the video upsets people on both sides of the political spectrum because Mr. Cohen is a Canadian citizen and he has no particular fondness for either Republicans or Democrats. His bleak video "takes no prisoners" in its portrayal of "the dumbing down of America." I think many Americans have this attitude that it's OK for Americans to criticize the country, but not foreigners, least of all foreigners residing in America."

Directed and Edited by Kyle Clemens, the video PRAYER FOR AMERICA presents a variety of disturbing juxtapositions between what Americans perceive to be normal and what Catman Cohen perceives to be otherwise.

"I am accustomed to negative, hostile reactions in promoting this particular artist," stated Ms. Asher. "I guess "unorthodox" might best describe his approach to the music biz. He refuses to include personal pictures or detailed bio info (eg. birthdate and birthplace). Furthermore, all interview requests have been declined to date since Mr. Cohen believes that we need to hear from neglected heroes (eg. nurses, teachers, firemen, paramedics, soldiers, police, environmentalists, human rights activists, etc.) rather than the plethora of over-indulged, over-idolized artists who dominate the Big Media. In his only live performance video to date, Catman Cohen appeared in silhouette and placed rescue workers out front."
