The creators of "Granite State of Mind," a light-hearted video tribute to the state of New Hampshire, have come out with a sequel to the wildly-successful clip entitled "Plow Guy Boogaloo." The brainchild of New Hampshire comedy troupe Super Secret Project, the video hit YouTube last night and already has nearly 20,000 views. 



Super Secret Project's original tribute, inspired by rapper Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind," has racked up almost two million views since debuting last March. The sequel features a number of cameos from New Hampshire natives including comedians Mike O'Malley and Sarah Silverman, San Antonio Spurs forward Matt Bonner, and meterologist Al Kaprielian

"I just kind of sent out e-mails at will trying to get people on board," Super Secret Project member Christian Wisecarver told New Hampshire TV station WMUR. "With Sarah Silverman, she was a fan of the first one. I was a little apprehensive to even bother her with it, but she was like, 'Yeah, sure.'"

According to WMUR, the video, set to Jay-Z's "Run This Town," was still being shot as of yesterday morning.
