Rob Ulitski - 30th Sept 2021

The infamous Sunny D scandal from the 90's get a bonkers visual treatment, in Will Clark's promo for Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard's You. 

Taking us on an obscure, orange juice-fuelled fever dream, we follow vocalist Tom as he downs a tonne of the drink, getting more and more orange until... well he turns into one. Just like internet meme icon The Annoying Orange, his entire body is replaced by the fruit, with only eyes and a mouth to keep singing along. 

Interspersed with shots of a news crew interviewing the singer, and shots of the band hula-hooping the night away, it's a brilliant visual for a brilliant track. 

WILL CLARK:

For a moment we thought Tom might actually turn orange. 

"I’ve always been inspired by Roald Dahl’s bonkers story plots and how the characters find themselves in all sorts of trouble. When concocting the idea I remembered a time in the 90s where Sunny D was fully turbo-charged and apparently had the power to turn us kids orange. I think they sold it off as being full of vitamins…

"It was pure fun from beginning to end working with a lovely bunch of very talented people. I really rate Tom’s commitment to the cause for chucking back so much juice then bathing in it. For a moment we thought he might actually turn orange. He rocks that orange face better than anyone…"
