Tiga’s Ciao! by Simon Owens
A video, here in two parts, by Simon Owens that's not actually a music video.
There's no music at all, just Tiga acting like the Cristiano Ronaldo of dance music (narcissistic, annoying, talented, ridiculous) in an in-depth TV interview with a po-faced chat show host.
Tiga wrote it, Simon directed it. It's strange, and very funny. Hats off to these guys. It's actually up there with the wonderful Shoes.
Simon Owens on making the video for Tiga's Ciao!
"I'd been speaking with Tiga and Oliver, his manager of international business affairs, for some time (since back when I was with Shazam in their Westbourne Grove office, and eating at Little and Large's Deli for lunch).
"After Oliver and his business partner Ryan had hooked up with the lord of music videos John Moule, to talk music videos and how great street art is, my name came up!
"Apparently they all wanted a live séance, as John believes in the spiritual arts of the extremely talented. We all then hooked up after a window arose for a conference call and discussed my genitals. After telling them how happy I was, they decided to let me in on a secret. Tiga can write scripts, and I have this thing! You know the thing! And can make things look good, and have excellent genitalia, I got the gig.
"It was excellent. We ended up in Brick Lane throwing bagels around, pretending we loved everyone, and generally high rolling on the 149 bus. Can I also do some shout outs Shout outs to Richard Hansen he did an AMAZING job! BJ you're the best!!"
