These Days pt. 2

To make an already-too-long-story somewhat shorter, The music video for the Foo Fighters’ “These Days” was cranked out in two and half weeks (which included a harrowing 44-hour edit marathon) and premiered on April 15th on Fuse TV. I was flown out to NYC to meet the filmmakers of the 10 other videos from Wasting Light on the preceding Tuesday—the day the album dropped. In addition to meeting, and commiserating with, the other directors, we met the band at a taping of Hoppus on Music, and managed to play a minor role in their all-out media assault surrounding the release of the album… a campaign which included SNL on Saturday, The Daily Show on Monday night, the taping with us at Fuse, and then that afternoon’s appearance on the Letterman show, which culminated with a two-hour set at the Ed Sullivan theater all done in homage to the Beatles 1964 television appearance. So, as bananas as the experience was at times, it was ultimately worthwhile… and now we finally have online rollout dates for www.fusemusic.com and www.foofighters.com simultaneously.
