Apparently Agencies Can Make More than Ads. Just Not Well


It's every creative's fantasy to demonstrate his or her real talents by shooting a music video or movie.

This is a pathetic fantasy.

So here we see a music video for Boston band Boys Like Girls, created by Company X.

The agency's description:

Director Alan Ferguson worked with Company X's Megan Brennan to snip this vid for breakout band Boys Like Girls. Rocking out in front of their screaming fans, Megan alternates between shots of the pop band and bored teenagers looking for a good time, we get a rock and roll saga that culminates at the concert of the century.

Generic. Nostalgia. Piece. Think Grease II. With emo hair.

i can't believe there were people behind this project, wanting it to get produced.
not only is it so cliche, it is lame.

Most cringe-inducing--the ridiculously fakey crowd shots. "OK, everyone, one arm up and jump!" Reminds me of the on-field "rockers" for a half time superbowl show. Put your camera phones away, girls--nothing says "unpopular band" like the ability to stroll up to center barricade mid-show.
