A little help from local law enforcement was all the Hager Twins of "Hee Haw" fame needed to create a traffic jam.

The look-alike singers, known for their years on the long-running program, visited northeastern Wisconsin to work on a music video for a tune called "I'm Wishin' I Could Go Fishin' Forever."

The video, with a classic country theme, starts with Jim and John Hager in hard hats and work clothes in a pickup truck, stuck in a traffic jam in Ashland, where traffic jams are uncommon.

"We called up the police chief and told him what we were doing, and that we needed a traffic jam," Jim said. "He said, 'What time?' When we got there, he had the main street blocked off and cars lined up. It was wonderful."
