Muppets?
21.11.07 by Buffalo Bill


James begged me not to publish this. But seeing as Xander already did the necessary, and Roxy sent me an e-mail about it too, I feel that I am absolved of all guilt. Was it worth it, guys, whatever it was they paid you?

You can view the whole thing in all its glory here

Updated

I kind of forgot to mention that this promo is a rip-off of (or at least very derivative of, if not actual plagiarism of) Tag, which features my old friend Khaled.

You can see the original here.

My apologies to the Tag film-makers for not mentioning this very important fact sooner.

  1. That’s really bad

  9. i like it except for the obvious roller blading…..should be pure roller skates or better still skateboarding…the bike footage and the way it flows is wicked.

  12. What’s with these Blader vs Courier films that don’t end? I wonder what those couriers would have done to that girl if they’d caught her before her friends turned up? Red Hot Chilli Peppers suck.

  13. I loved this piece on so many levels.

    On first viewing it initially struck me as some kind tongue-in-cheek snub to recent post-modern cliche ridden exposes on the nature of love, life and loss in modern metropolis; lost opportunities, the faux exciting thwarted chase, a wilting, cityscape scowling under an unforgiving, all-seeing sky.

    Later I felt the work was much more subtle, reflecting the child-like, grasping desperation of its makers and its protagonists, as if art had finally died and any hope of sewing originality and ‘a sense of realness’ into the fabric of life under the surface of ‘papa’ capitalism lost with a needling sense of boredom.

    The soundtrack? Epic. Not since Cher released ‘Believe (Life After Love)’ or Sash’s ‘Encore Une Fois’ has their been a popular sound that stands so brazenly for the potential of youth. * cough *

  16. I notice they do the ‘quicksilver’ as well, mysteriously changing bikes while riding…

  17. The bike changes were because James Brown cracked his Dolan and had to borrow assorted beater bikes for the shoot. I think Ryan’s Dolan broke that same week…

  18. It’s ok, I don’t know what are you mad about
