Hey. I've been trying to find out. If you pay close attention in The Wedding Band video for Thumpser. You see a toy goat. Well if you look at Marcus's mic it has a toy horse and Ted's bass has what looks like a toy pig. I was curious if there were more and what was the story behind them? Thanks:)

Hello, there. Thank you for the question.
Firstly, for those who haven’t yet seen The Wedding Band’s music video for “Thumper,” click here!
Marcus purchased the little toy animals at the Early Learning Centre during the band’s first UK tour and gave them to his bandmates as tour mascots; over time, the collection has included a donkey, Ben’s goat, a pig, an eagle, a mare, and a foal for Marcus, among others. They’ve said that some randomly disappear and reappear while they’re on tour, but you can always find some farm animals somewhere on the stage. Check out this YouTube video from the band’s gig at The Warfield in San Francisco on October 20, 2010 to hear them discuss the anatomically incorrect toy farm animals and their main—cough, cough, ahem—“charity work.”
Again, thanks for the question!
