Unklejam Walk Down A Hallway And Wind Up In One Of The Year’s Most Neon-Bright Videos

Oct 26th, 2007 // 3 Comments

If there’s one music video technique that I’m a total sucker for, it’s the one where the whole thing looks like it was recorded in one fell swoop of the camera (and sometimes was). Unklejam’s video for the booty-shaking “Love Ya” almost looks like a one-shot, but it actually has three cuts in it, as director Paul Gore tells Paper Thin Walls in an interview about the clip. Either way, its simple walking-down-the-hallway-where-crazy-shit*-happens construct results in four minutes that are compulsively watchable; if things don’t work out for David Lee Roth as far as the Van Halen tour go, he might do well to hook up with Gore for his next solo video.

    I realize it shouldn’t, but it really bothers when dudes who look
    like that make music that I actually like. It would have made me feel
    much safer in my worldview if they’d sounded like I expected: vacant,
    supersexxxy slapbass virtuosos.

    the Kevin Eubanks to Derek Zoolander’s Leno. That just made my shitty
    Friday afternoon, thanks.
