In a strongly-worded missive over on his MySpace, comedic writer/filmmaker Bob Odenkirk gets all feisty and legally threatening about his new video for Rogue Wave‘s “Chicago x12.” After first assuming “Wow, this guy’s a serious jerk, ” now after watching the video I kinda think, “Wow, this is a brilliant bit of marketing.” You be the judge:
With the cutout cardboard figures parading around Reseda, the surreal nature of the Director’s Cut version actually suits the imaginative feeling of the song pretty well. And then there’s the karate dude that we’re not sure what to do with. A catchy song off a rather majestic album nonetheless.
Chicago x12 – Rogue Wave
Watch for the band’s version of the video to be released in the coming weeks. Oh, it’s on.
