Confidence Man have a new video for their current single ‘Boyfriend.’ Filmed and edited by Schall & Schnabel, DIY had the premiere:
The band’s Janet Planet talked a bit about the making of the single and the video:
“We wrote this song at our home studio in about two hours. By the end of the day we were so excited and drunk that lots of stupid ideas seemed to be working… which is where the lyric ‘I hate bacon and eggs’ comes from. It’s probably not something we would come up with normally, but the next day when we listened back it turned out to be our favourite part. As for the video, we haven’t played with Barbies for a while, but it seemed like the right time to get my old Ken dolls out”.’
The directors, Berlin-based Schall & Schnabel, also added:
“This was the most absurd shot list we ever had to work on; finally we could live out all our wildest childish fantasies. And you’ll always learn something from a new production: in this case, Ken is hard to knock around, Kevin is easier to crush”.
