Best Buy Is Helping Expose Singer Matt Morris. Now He’s Returning the Favor About the Anti-Gay Company

Matt Morris, the married gay singer-songwriter and one-time Mickey Mouse Club member, was thrilled when Best Buy started airing promo videos for his new record When Everything Breaks Open. Then he found out Best Buy was funding the effort to elect anti-gay Tom Emmer governor of Minnesota.

So Morris — who you might remember from dueting with regular collaborator Justin Timberlake during the Haiti relief telethon — took down the video he originally recorded (with much excitement) of him visiting his local Best Buy, and replaced it with the one above. So while he doesn’t want you to ban Best Buy outright — after all, he wants you to go into the store and buy his CD — he would love for you to take his record off the rack and replace it with some informational material about what the money you spend in Best Buy goes toward.
