Music Video Premiere
World Class Driver
The World Class Driver video was directed by Josh Forbes. His interpretation of the track and inspiration for the video:
The concept for this video came from the lyric “take it real slow”. It sounded like something an old person might say. The next lyric is “so put the pedal to the floor”, which made me think of an old person rolling down the street like a badass in a Rascal scooter.
From there it became a game of “what sort of depraved things can I get old people to do?” and “how can we put an old person spin on it?” So instead of doing heroin, the guy’s freebasing Werther’s Original, and instead of watching some hardcore porn, they’re watching a video of Angela Lansbury giving herself a massage in a hot tub.
This is one of my favorite videos of all-time, even if I hadn’t made it. Apparently it creeps people out, but for me it’s just pure delight. It reminds me of Werner Herzog’s “Even Dwarves Started Small”, a movie about a group of insane Little People who take over their asylum and create their own micro-society. I like the idea of a world overrun by crazy old people. It scares the hell out of me.
