so i had this crazy idea.
i wanted bobcat goldthwait to direct the video for “kinks shirt.”
creatively, there is NO ONE who thinks like bob.
he is unhooked. and hilarious. and twisted. and sweet.
and add to that the fact that he is a HUGE kinks fan…
it felt perfect.
so i asked him.
and he said yes!!!
and we were off to the races.
when i shot the video for 'modern love' last year,
it was the first time i felt like a video represented more of what
i believe in. a deeper layer of the onion, if you get my bad food
metaphor. don’t get me wrong, i love all my videos.. but the whole
“guy with guitar trying to look sexy” thing was played out.. and really isn’t me.
so when bob sent the treatment for this video, i flipped.
i loved it.
i loved that it showed people unapologetically being themselves.
even if the world may not be hip to it. yet.
and it made me laugh a bunch…. check out bob’s mariachi cameo!
