yes, i did like the idea of a helplessly dangling male that neatly fits the tone and lyrics of the song.
and yes, i did like the idea of torturing my friend for a music video.
but the final push to show the ugly side of adam by hanging him upside down and shooting a portrait-style music video was a comment from one of the PR-guys on the goatmen´s upcoming album: after their first photo shoot a few weeks ago, he actually said something along the lines of “don´t put your portraits on the cover, nobody wants to see the old guys who make this music..”
so here we are, redefining ourselves, starting our rock´n´roll careers at 40plus, rocking the world while our backs hurt, and then this ? never underestimate the creative power of our collective midlife crises, and if necessary, we gonna buy leather jackets and dig out our old western boots!
