Beautiful lighting and costume design, the liquids are watchable... However, this vid falls flat on its arse.

I've said it once and i'll say it again, i have such high expectations of Saam's stuff always excited to see what he does next, and i will continue to do so. But in this case i was more excited to see the end of the video.

Maybe a better edit would benefit? Or maybe something more sexual?

Reminds me of a japanese lip balm commercial

horrible song. maybe a concept that didn't mirror the song's melody as much would have made for a more interesting video

Saam have chosen the coolest bands nowadays, that's the key of his success.

Well done Saam. Amazing! Gorheous shots and stylistic. Thanks Saam for another stunning video. Speak to you soon mate.

I think it's slightly unfair to blame the edit... That's not the problem... There's a lack of musical and visual variety that is virtually impossible get away from. The post is very impressive tho.

great still, shame about the video really. goes nowhere. at all. anyone think the singer sounds a bit like the lovechild of prince and captain caveman?

kevathens, April 16, 2007 at 12:12:08 AM CEST

I dig it, but, you know, target audience and all. This is mildly Sednaouian! Oh no you didn't!

commissionergordan, April 16, 2007 at 11:55:51 AM CEST

I love this, it strikes me more Hypesque than Sedanous. I'd love to see what Saam would do with a Hype budget.

hassinator, April 16, 2007 at 1:50:43 PM CEST

wallop - thats great saam

shatner, April 16, 2007 at 3:12:45 PM CEST

I'm a big fan.

mrmemory, April 16, 2007 at 7:20:48 PM CEST

this is pure quality.. slick saam init...

eyeraw, April 16, 2007 at 9:31:40 PM CEST

It is mildy Sednaouian. I never thought about that. Don't go there girlfriend.

yenvalmar, April 17, 2007 at 2:12:01 AM CEST

if you took a frame grab every 5 seconds and turned it into a photo exhibition you'd really have something. as a music video it reminds me of watching fashion TV while the acid is wearing off.. i dont mean that as an insult OR a compliment.. how do you even pitch something like this? did you pre-visualize the rainbow effect for the pitch materials? was there even a pitch? just curious..

i thought the space ship intro/outro, though its been done, sorta saved it as a piece.. maybe the space ship has been done but at least it gave it someplace to go.

jhenry, April 18, 2007 at 4:04:41 PM CEST

I liked it all bar the spaceship intro...

Parts of it struck me as almost a companion/evil twin of his Golden Skans vid...

gsummer, April 20, 2007 at 11:42:30 PM CEST

Jhenry...yeah I thought of Golden Skans too, but that promo I liked much more. This one is lifeless. It feels like too much of a re-hash of his other stuff. Not that I am against the idea of a Director having lingering fascinations with certain images and themes, but it should feel fresh. I don't think the music is the problem, or the edit, per se. There just isn't any development to speak of over the course of the video. No suprises. Slick, yes. No questioning the competence. It's just uninteresting.

saam-unklejam-mov - get it while it lasts!

johnny_cashback, May 21, 2007 at 1:55:43 AM CEST

Really excellent, it's like george clinton merged with the alien quadrilogy or whatever you call it. brilliant.

cusso, July 2, 2007 at 1:16:38 PM CEST

Brilliant video. Saam is Saam because of his themes. Should he change his vison because a handful of people like to see their ideas on this site? Guess that's the 'vibe' on this site. I like Saam's work. The video was slick. So is Unklejam.

I know Im late and all but I love this video!
