Julio Bashmore’s got a pretty weird new video for Let Me Be Your Weakness feat. Bixby that was on his Knockin’ Boots album.
Director DANIEL BRERETON explains…
“The idea for the video came about from the songs title “Let Me Be Your Weakness”, I thought it would be interesting to make a video about peoples weaknesses. The strange things people do to escape from the dullness of day to day life. So I pitched it to Bashmore that we would find hobbyists and obsessives that partake in weird and wonderful past times. Matt was into it, so we then went about searching for a wide range of activities, from crab museums to the largest collection of milk bottles in the UK. Honestly, the search was very difficult for the producers, most of the time the weirder stuff that people were into they didn’t really want to shout about, as they often thought they could be exploited or ridiculed. But my idea was always to celebrate the eccentricities of people. I think we ended up with a really good bunch, including a viking, a furry, poodles, Irish dancers and cosplayers.”
The weirdness continues on his new interactive site… Investigate the strange Angry Birds alternative using bits of fried chicken… :/
