The Obsession truck did a video for the rapper Action Jackson.  The shoot was done at Studio 60 in Los Angeles.  They had them fire up the truck for the video and had the singer sitting in the truck singing and acting like he was driving.  It is always fun doing a video shoot and meeting new people.  It was another fun day in L.A.!
