This gobsmacking video for Crookers' collaboration with Tim Burgess was held up for ages due to all sorts of legal whatnots - but now Seb Caudron's lurid masterwork finally has an official release.
Guy Pearce 'Fly All The Way' by Tim White
He's been one of Australia most eminent and successful actors for years, but now Guy Pearce unveils a new side of himself in Tim White's comically manic promo for his new single Fly All The Way.
Collaborating with the Melbourne-based commercial and music video director, the setting has a larger-than-life infomercial theme (complete with intro by Aussie TV host Larry Emdur) with some sci-fi undertones, in which Guy assumes multiple roles with eye-popping gusto: fitness guru, elderly scientist, TV cook and more - all promoting the dubiously miraculous benefits of such products as 'Neuro-Smash' - and then beginning to display some disturbing side-effects...
Guy says: “I knew I wanted to do something pretty nutty for this song and when Tim suggested we do a video centred around infomercial world I realised the idea was born. Tim took the rather petulant and unhinged nature of this song to a whole new level.”
Tim White: “This video is an expression of my love for bleak dystopian sci-fi films & Australian morning TV infomercials. It's a winning combination that we don't see enough of nowadays."
