Steve Taylor is a legend in Christian music. (I highly commend to you two great podcasts, The Pivot & Cultivated where he tells his war stories about saving Sixpence None the Richer from an evil lawyer and directing Michael W. Smith in an interracial buddy-pastor movie.) Besides being an incredible musician and songwriter who probably co-wrote your favorite Newsboys song, he’s also a filmmaker. I haven’t watched any of his movies besides the one where the Newsboys have to save a circus, but his video for the song Cash Cow is undoubtedly the most terrifying and brilliant music video of all time. So I’m sharing it with you.
