Directed by Jacob Hensberry
Video looks great...very fitting for these guys... I actually know them a little bit and def think it represents them well. I was curious what it was shot on???
Thanks very much! I'm really happy with it and they were great to work with. I like your work too. Drop me an e-mail sometime and I'll give you all the technical details.
this video is boring. kinda cheesy too. well shot though.
I really liked this. Moody ambience and lots of cute kids, the part with the birthday cake was almost too remincient of the whole high scool thing. I've like this song for a while too.
Learn to spell Marzipan! It was well shot though.
Jiegen, this was really cool. Love that shot of the drummer, a Last Waltz homage? I also like that its kind of slow, not in any hurry or anything but it matches the slow fast pacing of the tune. Good work.
Thanks again guys. I can't belive everyone is getting the Last Waltz thing but yes, I ripped it off from that. Its hard to shoot drummers that sing.
nicely shot (though it bothered me to see the singing drummer in two so completely different lights), nice build, great costumes, great track.
so what was it shot on?
ok maybe im in a debating mood... but there are 2 comments above that are just FUCKING RUDE!!!!

Thats just being an asshole. For one, if you are reading the blog you would see that the video was posted by the director...so its fucking ignorant so shit on someone elses creativity like that ...especially when it demonstrates a certain skill set... Cheesey what kind of criticism that? Then the it was shot well comment.. like you'll utter a small token niceness....could you maybe do a us a favor and post your brilliant work.
RHINO writes: total crap.
Rhino if you think so little of it then why bother posting a comment... again its just rude. Perhaps you;d like to show your work.
Im all for having an opinion and sharing it...but those are constructive. Say what is working or what is not working.... but shitting on people is just not cool
I dunno, poopofthebird sounds right on the mark.
It's a performance video for a bored-looking band - the director doesn't really do anything too interesting. Footage looks good.
and the poster never indicated he was the director.
If people read the comments by others you would see that the poster was the director.
RHINO - youre a fuck face. Simply put you dont criticize. You dont make videos. Your defensive. I said nothing of sensoring you. I just said how some criticism. Since you admittingly dont direct than Im guessing you have no idea how hard it is to for someone to pull off a video even if it is a simple performance video. Its worth respecting people who in engage in trying to do so even if they have very little in the way of resources.
As for you comment about the NYC location..its called Philadelphia
WHAT ON EARTH IS THE VIEWING PUBLIC... is that 15 yos on MTV...
Id love to hear other peoples thoughts on the sort of crap RHINO has to offer... you so obviously are the kid thats had has ass handed to him too many times
First off, thanks Quixotic for backing me up and shit. I got your back too. And thanks for the direct link.
Ahh yes, captainmarc22, the bain of videos.antville rises from the shadows to poo poo others work without a shred of his own to show. I guess, since you are obviously not an industry professional and have nothing better to do then hang around here and get all Jeloous and shit that YOU don't work in the biz and are stuck selling tacos or shoes, we are supposed to care one iota about what you have to say? Puuulleesse!
RHINO Yes yes, same case for you little one. No posts of your own work and you're obviously another bitter assiant something or other slaving away in a posthouse machine room wishing he directed a video for one of the hottest bands in NYC, boo hoo for you.
By the way guys, this "Boring" "Total Crap" video was pulled off for 700 bucks. Kiss mine. I've had two phone calls from Dir. Reps today, so I guess it must REALLY suck.
One day people will use this site to be constructive I hope... and not prove to the world that they have a small penis.
And BTW, the more you comment, the more people will watch the video. I've had 5000 hits to my site today, so you guys are doing me a huge favor! Keep dishing the winey half assed critques, they're working out well for me. I really appreciate it!
Rock on Quixotic.

Look jiegen - you posted this video in the third person - and then take it personally when people respond with less than sycophantic praise. Grow up, dude.
Here's constructive criticism: come up with a concept. Performance and people holding hands? Wow, transcendent. And the editing sucks. Cutting to the closeup of the girl when she sings is predictable and amateurish.
And what's with this constant refrain of critics must direct in order to criticize?
Does Roger Ebert's opinion hold no merit because he hasn't directed a film?
Does anyone go see a movie because a feature film director gave it a good review?
From what I know about crticism is that you need to have a relative history of the genre (for context) and a general enthusiasm for the subject (to recognize good work). A lot of people here, "directors" or not fit that bill.
Whatever dude! You better get back to the shoe store before you get fired. That lady over there needs a size 7 hush puppy right away! And later on you have Dungons and Dragons meeting, and we wouldn't want you to be late for that!
If it isn't genius, it's worthless, and a waste of time for everyone involved.
Then this entire site is a waste of time...
Jiegen this is GOD! You are ment to be a peckerwood in this life and nothing more. Stop your futile attempt to gain popularity and riches for you will fail. I forbid you to touch another motion picture camera for as long as you live. You've brought great disgrace on all that is beautiful and sublime!!.....oh and stop masturbating at this rate you'll need to shave your tounge twice a day by the time you're 30.
This was a great little video. Okay sometimes its seemed that the editing followed some sort of defined pattern, which got a little tiring, but the locked off shots really worked. It’s a shame the room was so small, I would have liked some longer shots – perhaps of the whole band – to see some sort of dynamic between the musicians, but that may not have been your aim. Just a thought. And the girl was kind of cute, so why not have her singing? All that for 700. That’s great – not that value for money should be the mark of quality though!
Might be an idea if we stop with the personal insults. Its quite irritating when you make a comment and someone replies with “gosh, you’re such a retard!” Leave that sort of stuff to Jessica Simpson fans. Captainmarc has every right to post comments (even if they are a little brief sometimes) even if he doesn’t work in the industry. I do work in the ‘industry’, but I don’t make promos. Am I excluded as well? This forum should be open to anyone who has a genuine interest in good music videos as well as those who make them; otherwise it becomes nothing more than a circle jerk.
i still think it's a boring video.
I still think it's great.
no. you're right. i'm finally convinced. it's fucking groundbreaking.
