Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Much of the nation was introduced to Pomplamoose by a series of annoying television ads urging Americans to celebrate the birth of Jesus by buying a compact car.

As this week's feature, "The Pomplamoose Revolution," reveals, there may be more to the band than that.

Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn's collaboration is "a musical project that is half traditional band, half social media experiment and entirely an insurrection against how things are normally done in the music business."

Sure, their videos can cause cuteness overload, but their business plan is making people pay attention.

In case you've wiped the memory, here's one of their Christmas ads:

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
