Holy Sh*tballs are these guys ever professionals. Sadly I couldn’t stay for the entire video pitch shoot as I had my own show to get to, but man, they were gracious, excited, did what was asked of them and gave some great suggestions too.
The idea of them being ‘everyman’, playing themselves and all the characters in this music video is going to be one hell of a ride. It’s going to be an incredible challenge and I am really, really looking forward to it. I haven’t heard all their crazy stories about what’s happened out on the road, but I’ve heard one or two and they’re pretty crazy. A good Albertan Band telling stories about what’s happened on the road in Alberta and using themselves to tell these stories… and possibly running into… themselves? Maybe a bar fight with…. themselves? WHO WOULDN’T WANT A CHALLENGE LIKE THAT?? This is going to be loads of fun for us and the viewer for sure. Easter Eggs everywhere.
PLUS the band is willing to do house concerts too and perhaps a BBQ. Seriously, these guys are top-knotch. Maybe I’ll get them to build me a new garage too…..
