Automatonophobics Beware! The Bass May Not Be The Only Thing Making You Shake With This Video
June 13, 2014
Following our theme this week of music videos with the band nowhere to be seen comes The Devil Wears Prada, with their video for ‘Sailors Prayer‘ from the bands 2013 release 8:18 via Roadrunner Records.
“We’ve seen puppetry in music videos before, but mostly as a bit of a comic gag, think Mastodon’s ‘Deathbound’ a full blown puppet massacre that no amount of hot glue and fun fur can fix.”
When it comes to TDWP‘s version, we’re loving not only the charming puppetry skills and clever camera work, but also how the video clings to real life with relative details- like the look of our main little puppet friend (who looks like half the guys I’ve dated) to the way he flips through photos on his Iphone with the girl at the bar. Clever and absolutely adorable.
Be sure to catch The Devil Wears Prada this summer as part of the 2014 Vans Warped Tour, where they are giving their fans the chance to pick their set list, and pick up a limited pink vinyl of 8:18.
So are you currently sitting in a puddle of tears? Or are our RemembeMEdia followers a tab bit more heartless than we thought? be sure to let us know how you feel about this tragic love story, and the video in general.
