Band Shoots Free Video With Surveillance Cameras
Unsigned Manchester UK band The Get Out Clause performed in front of a number of surveillance cameras on buses and streets and other public places around the country. They then used The Data Protection Act (the UK’s version of US’ Freedom Of Information Act) to get copies of the tapes and edited them into a video that’s become a viral hit.
Garagespin suggests that it’s the patriotic thing for US artists to follow suit this 4th of July and have the federal government help produce their next video.
Apparently only part of it was real CCTV, and they made it look like it was by adding effects. Adding to the buzz was the involvement of Liam Walsh of Oasis PR fame.
Of course, the idea and the hype is a lot more important than whether it was a fake or not.
Also found another example from 1995 by a band called The Frames: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NRVIaeFAhM
Good idea, just a shit song & very boring video. Innovation alone does not equate to good / entertaining.
Its amazing to see the video of with security camera.Its totally a new advanced technology for me.I appreciate this technology seeing the development and result after discovering this security camera technology.
