Joe Stakun explores the delicate balance of masculinity and insecurity in this hilarious video for Pissed Jeans.
AJJ 'Goodbye, Oh Goodbye' by Joe Stakun
Every so often a video comes along that feels like an event: a mammoth undertaking and a huge achievement both technically and creatively. For these artworks, the payoff is virality - and deservingly so. Typically the kings of this have been OK Go, a band so viral they might as well change their name to Zika.
Well, the behemoths of the one-take have been knocked off their pedestal by Arizona's AJJ with the help of director Joe Stakun. How did a band of relative obscurity come up with such an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping and downright vital video? Well, you'll wanna stick around after the video finishes for a mini-doc that gives you a peek behind the curtain.
All hyperbole aside, this video does a hilarious job of poking fun at the kind of video that normally gets nothing but hyperbole, without being downright cynical about it. Probably helped by just how straight-faced they play the whole thing.
