"Of all the videos, we had the most fun making this one," says Mike. "It was really entertaining to see Noel get so into his character and he pulled it off quite well. I actually think he would make a decent actor if he ever decided to give it a whirl. As far as casting the rest of the video I don't think we could have done a better job.

"It was such an honor to work with Zoe Bell as I've been a huge fan of hers ever since Kill Bill and Death Proof. Omar Doom, also of the Tarantino alumni (Inglorious Basterds, Death Proof), makes a cameo as well. Troy Mittleider was absolutely perfect in the role of the husband who gets his ass kicked. All I can say is...who better to get your ass kicked by than Zoe Bell Another notable presence is Brent DeBoer, drummer of The Dandy Warhols, as the ringside radio announcer.

"More than any of the videos I've made, my friends in the industry really came together on this one (hair, makeup, wardrobe, production design) to make Dream On something special. Noel and I agree this is the best of the four videos we've collaborated on.

"One last person I would like to mention is my DP, Salvador Lleo. He really knows how to photograph an image. We first worked together on my second feature (Treasure of the Black Jaguar) and we've been working together ever since. When I first started out I used to shoot everything myself. Salvador and I share a similar obsession with film so our communication, flow and rhythm on set is quite magical. We understand each other and the language of cinema."
