"The song was a BFM Radio hit and Daniel (Darcy) needed a music video fast! I shot footage of his concert at the bfm summer series, and then he and I spent an afternoon hooning round for extra angles.The cameras were what was available at short notice and no money. A hand cranked 16mm camera, VHS camera deck, Hi-8 video. The idea was to make it loose and random. Daniel sweet talked to MAX TV so after hours Ian Bennett cut the clip together for us. We were short on shots thou, so keeping with the random concept we used some shots from my short films The Fall and Post Apocolyptic Blues. The music clip suited the music brilliantly, because they were both low-fi and full of odd ball energy. The shot of Darcy snorting the mountain range of illicit coccaine is actually custard powder! Later, I believe the record company re-edited the clip adding additional concert footage." - David Gunson, Director/ cameraman, in conversation with Roger Shepherd, 2008.
