"As of the last few years I've been doing a lot more visual art, drawing, painting, screenprinting, ect.," Zanetti explains about the video. "When I was writing for this record Chris Stowe and Chris #2 stumbled across a few drawings I was working on. They thought it would be a good idea to incorporate it with one of the new tunes from the record. So we put our heads together, and this is what we came up with."
The Homeless Gospel Choir is Zanetti's mouthpiece for his outspoken views on political and social topics ranging from greed, privilege and complacency. On his latest song, he tackles America's obsession with the end of days.  
""Armageddon" is in reference to the anxiety, and fear that comes along with always thinking the world is going to end," adds Zanetti. "These "doomsday preppers" spend more time worrying about death, and not enough time living. And I think that is both funny and sad."
"Armageddon" follows The Homeless Gospel Choir's recent video for "Black Friday," a song about the country's grotesque consumerism, and "Untitled," a song about living outside the confines of traditional American ideals.
