PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL PLAYER DIRECTS THE MOST EXPENSIVE METAL VIDEO EVER PRODUCED
I’m completely lying. I mean, the director of the below video, for Ghost in the Machine‘s “Never Trust a Pirate,” was directed by someone calling himself Brock Williams, but I somehow doubt that it’s the former NFL cornerback. And it certainly is NOT the most expensive metal video ever produced — or, rather, if it is, than the money must have gone up someone’s nose or something.
But the video IS a good lesson in how creativity can overcome budgetary restraints. The music doesn’t do much for me (although it’s certainly not the worst thing a reader has sent me today), but the video is memorable, and definitely way better than, like, at least 90% of all the other metal videos I’ve seen this year. Hopefully other professional athletes turned auteurs will take a lesson from Mr. Williams.
Thanks to Culleen for the tip!
