Working Hard. Still.

This is for another script I’m working on.

NIRVANA. IN BLOOM. HOW COOL.

THE BEATLES. TWIST AND SHOUT.

Those Beatles. You can see that they’re cool, even tho they are all tied up in their suits, they have an extra twinkle happening. Have u read Outliers? Gladwell and his 10 000 hours theory. The Beatles played every day, for 8 hours, in Hamburg when they first started out. Hence how tight they are.

Here is a random comment from YouTube

God, the Beatles look like FUCKING GIRLS compaired to the short haired American males in the audience!!! Everyone remembers Ed Sullivan introducing the Beatles to America and so do I. My dad and all the male neighbours had a meeting´╗┐ on our front lawn. My dad asked “Did you see the Beatles?” Yeah, they all look like Girls. Well, my dad said, I ain’t letting my sons listen to that Shit!!! My dad said “My brother was in England during WWII and he said the British LOVE dressing up like women! 1964”

For my ad, I wanted to make 10 year old kids breaking the stage - aka the Nirvana clip, but it’s probably more likely that we’ll go the parody route. Would rather have kids breaking stuff tho. And moshing. Violently.

Mosh: verb [ intrans. ]
dance to rock music in a violent manner involving jumping up and down and deliberately colliding with other dancers.

Working Hard

Advertising is a mixed job, but one of the benefits is that you see a lot of references. For everything. Which feed your brain.

This is a set for a script I am putting together. The script isn’t done yet, but these are my refs.

THE DARK SIDE OF THE LENS (Surfing)

LED SNOWBOARDER (Snowboarding)

FLAT GROUND TRICKS (Skating)
