The Offspring made many (17) videos for their singles. Everyone knows that. But I think it would be interesting if you guys could post ideas for other videos they could have done. Post the song & description please.

Great thread this one!

Well, I'm a guy that likes when the videos are somehow related to the songs. I'd enjoyed a lot to see "Long Way Home" brought to video.

Idea:
Maybe they could put one guy who's always arguing with his parents, girlfriend, teachers, boss... and then we could see him in the driveway, going real fast, doing crazy manouvers (no this is not Bad Habit :p ... hummm... wait a minute... another idea for a video hahaha), preferably at night, the camrea could focus on his eyes lots of times, and he could look kinda scary, like a ghost or something, that would be great. Then, he could arrive to a beach, or countryside or something to watch the stars, and reflect on all his life. We could see some flashbacks of his life, always troubled. The he'd come back home, and on the way back get hit by a car driving in the opposite direction. It's kinda fucked up, but the song suggests a fucked up disposition too... and between all this, some live footage (video only, not sound) in a raging Offspring concert would be great!

... Jeez, you guys should thank God I'm no video director hahaha

damn its hard to think of ideas :(

Worst hangover ever
could see the guy hanging out at first then it switches to sights of him puking in the toilet, crawling back to his bed, and considering killing himself to end the suffering. but the video could be kind of "warped" to match the fucked up sight when you're drunk. and at the end he crawls to a beer keg & drinks more.

I've got an idea for a video. It's pretty simple...

What happened to you:

It could start with some scenes with a guy and his friend doing stuff together (like playing basketball or football). And then this guy comes walking down the street a couple of years later and sees his friend hanging out with some "cool" guys, smoking or whatever, and then this guy starts thinking about the old days. This is where I run out of ideas. :o Haha.. shitty idea! At least I came up with something :p

"Never gonna find me - Lightning rod" would be the first.

I'm not good in descrptions but I'll try. I'd do something obvious... A video where someone is always running away from people and things (as If this was high by drugs) and immediately this person goes to a faraway place where a lightning strikes this person's head..... Something like that but with more things of course.

The second one would be "The worst hangover ever"

A party with a popular guy (Not the nerd one this time) that cannot drink, but does it to get people's attention. He totally messes things up and every one makes fun of him and he gets fucked up by being sick a lot hehe..... This video would also be pretty obvious.

=D

I think a "Spare me the details" video would be a great idea. You know, someone who goes to the party and there he find out that his girlfriend is being fucked for another guy (Censured, of course :D )

I don't know if it would be that tasteful, but I think they could really kick arse with a spare me the details video :p

Or special delivery - you could just have this pair of manic eyes, snapping back and forth from the eyes to a car, with the background doing the whole high speed thing and only the car in focus...

As you can tell, I have no idea how to make a music video :rolleyes:

HAHA you can be hilarious a few times dude!

Well, back to subject, let me try another video:

We could have Denial, Revisited video. I think the main scenario might be a guy in an empty room, only with a TV and a table, for instance. He'd look all messed up, dirty and all that, like he was a junkie or something. Then, he'd be watching a video on the TV of The Offspring playing in a random place, it could even be a studio like in Can't Repeat or something; then, he could have his remote control on his hand, and whenever he changes the TV channel, the image would swap to a specific scene of his previous relationship. The first ones could be cool, like walking in the beach, watching the stars from the balcony, making love, hanging out with friends, etc. The camera should also focus on his face, as he expresses anger and sadness at the same time he strikes the helpless remote control with unnecessary violence. (Damn, I'd make a hell of an emo video director)

Then the things eventually would get worse, and fighting followed to all that joy... and that's when we see him holding his head with his hands, pulling his hair, and the camera should focus on the scenes as if they were clearly inside the character's head... it would be a cool effect! ... like in OP, when the camera enters the outlet, this camera could enter his brain, and then those scenes would appear! The final scene of their relationship could be seeing them sitting on a bench, with him crying, and trying to hug her, and she would stand softly tears down her face (huh this sounds familiar), putting him away, and then leaving him there, going away in her car. Then, the camera would come back to his room, showing him moving away from the couch where he was sitting, the remote control falls on the floor, and switches automatically to an image of the band playing again... and right in the end, after Dexter sings "Finally", we would hear a gun shot. BANG!

Special Delivery Idea:

Starts off with this Nerd asking a Popular chik out and her turning him down and making fun of him... Then it cuts to him sitting in his car watching her (during the night) Then he gets out leaves a present by the door rings the door bell then piss bolts away. The Girl picks it up takes it inside up to her room (feeling all loved) she opeans it and there is a huge explosion. Then is cuts to the band playing in a burnt house with little flames randomly placed.

Never Gunna Find Me:

Like a Jackel and Hide sort of thing... This guy could be running through a maze made out of mirrors. Every time he looks or passes a mirror there could be a different band member singing or playing back to him or different faces. When he finally comes to the end of the maze he comes face to face with his reflection (who of course will be dexter) then he punches the mirror and it breaks into four sections. Top right will be a section of dexters right eye and nose head, Top left will be a scetion of Noodles left eye and nose, Bottom Right will be a section of gregs mouth and chin and Bottom Left will be a section of Atoms mouth and chin.

my vision on "The Noose"

firts...there's noodles playing the intro riff as the camera is getting backward's and showing all the band with their head's down....then when the drum's enter...a flash of one guy appears and its like he's fighting with his friends cuz they dont agree in nothing...and they just wait in the time to get things fixed up..and thats when another flash of one girl appears seeing the future and then the scene gets freeze and then it melt down with fire showing the band as the scene enter to one eye of dexter and then shows a big race of fast cars with the same guys that were fighting earlier and they are competing with another gang...and one of the guys turn's on a cigarrete and the shot enters the cigarrete and then it shows a little boy playing with his little toy cars as their parents are fighting really bad...but he is avoiding that and then the scene enter's a drain near his room...then it comes back to they guy in a car that will compete with the other guy of the gang...he throws his cigarret and then he prays to win the race....then..when one of the guys win...a scene enters in the right eye and then the scene shows all the band playing the chorus...then the shot starts to disolve when the same race guy is thinking about how he follow the tracers and ends there and he says like "no" moving his head...then we enter in his left eye and see the same little boy watching how his mother has a lot of bruises as she remember the good times with her family before they start fighting...and then the boys has a flashback where we are watching a coffin surrounded by candles and the victim is her mom with two coins in the eyes..then a strong air blow off the candles and then the band is showed again playing the 2 next chorus with different motions so we can balance the aparitions of the four members...the we get to the "no more!...no more!!" part...in this part they are playing live for all the people showed in the video singing along with them...and in the part of the song...when the last riff of guitar with the drums is hit...we watch dexters eyes closin and the shot is fading to dark slowly as the sound is disappearing....done! haha

what do you think?? haha =P

some of these vid ideas are the shit...

for me, i like to come up with vids that'll really get the band involved...

this is a video i've been working over in my head for over a month for no song in particular(its very detailed and i apologize for the lengthyness):

the intro is playing and everything looks normal, the guys are all playin on stage at a show or a tv recording or something. jsut before dexter starts to sing, he looks over a realizes that greg k isn't there. he then looks back forward with a 'the show must go on' attitude. the instant his eyes meet the camera again, they get really wide in surprise as greg k tackles him and pushes him out of the way. greg k then starts up lipsyncing the vocals as dexter goes off and yells at the director shooting the whole thing.

then it shows a kid sitting on the couch, playing on a bass,watching this all take place on tv (i guess it was a tv recording...lol i forgot). then there's a lightbulb over the kids head. and then zooms in on the tv, back to the band playing with greg k as the frontman and dexter nowhere to be found. then there is a bright flash and this is where it gets really funny.

we're still in the studio and greg k is still fronting, but he's all done up like dexter(i almost typed sexter lol) with a cheap blonde spikey wig(cheap for the shear cheesiness) and some very dexter-esque clothes on, and he's got dexter's diamond plate guitar(i chose this one cause its distinctive). then it show the other guys. Dexter is back on the scene, but he's on the drums, done up like atom, you know, tightish shirt, cheap slicked-back black wig. Noodles is playin the bass(probably greg's sparkly tourquoise one), dressed in a plain t-shirt and a cheap brown spikey wig. and Atom is playin noodles' NDM1 and he's got a cheap white wig with black spots srayed onto it on and a 'not my president' shirt on or one similar to noodles' prison shirt or something.

and then it changes to the kid we saw earlier trying to take over as frontman in his/her band and getting into a fist fight with the others.

then its shows some magazine clippings that say stuff like "Revenge Of The Bassit phenomena, Greg K tells all". then it flashes back to the intial scene with greg fronting (not when they are dressed up like each other, before that). and then we see dexter watching this on tv and he's done up kind of like higgins in WDYGAJ (dirty, disgusting wife-beater type look), and he's yellin and throwing shit at the tv.

then we have one more look at them done up all goofy. then greg k wakes up.... then i was thinking to either have that as the ending or to have the guys finish it off with natural offspring class with everyone where they should be... what do you all think? i'm leaning a bit more towards having gregk waking up being the ending...but idk

clearly you can tell i've put a lot of thought into this... lol

I got also an idea :p
This time also for Never Gonna Find Me followed by Lightning Rod

Never Gonna Find Me is about a guy that runs through all kind of streets, jumps through windows and stuff, while we see the band playing on the background or maybe some live footage between the running scenes. At the end of the song the guy runs to the top of a hill. There, the camera is going up towards the blue, dark sky synchronizing with the sound when Never Gonna Find Me is turning into Lightning Rod on the cd. We can see a moon and as you hear the first guitar, a lightningbolt strikes down and the camera goes down again, showing the band on the top of the hill, exactly where the guy was standing.
In Lightning Bolt you can see a city from the top of the hill. When Dexter starts to sing, the camera goes on a really fast way down that hill, through woods and trees and stops in the centre of the city where cars just drive and on the streets you can see guys fighting each other for no reason. The camera's goes further through the city showing more scenes of fucked up lives, switched by the band playing on the top of that hill.
In the end, another lightning bolt comes down that electrofies the whole city and I don't know what abound the band at that moment. Sorry :p But I hope it's a good idea.

i'd like to see walla, walla made into a video...it could have a comical appearance...like not a serious video...one people could have fun with...about a guy who just happened to get caught in the act of something and then the video would follow him and all the cops could be really fat and the judge would have one of those powdered white curly wigs....and then you see him in jail....it would start out with having him staring at a clock and then it would end with him staring at the clock and it had only been one minute and he sighs...something sort of like that...the video would follow the lyrics to the song which are pretty self explanatory..if that made any sense it would be a good video....and the offspring would make up the prison guards and you'd see them playing the song

Have You Ever:
It could start off with a shot of the band playing in an unused store, then when the intro starts speeding up, it could switch to a shot of a town, and zoom into one house as the intro continues to speed up. At the "have you ever, walked through a room" part, it could show someone just waking up, someone who looks like they're having a shitty life at the time, and do a 360 with the camera as the person wonders out of their room. A fast 360, and it's night. It's the same house, and the character is having a party, but still totally out of it, sitting on the couch with her head bowed and eyes closed. She gets up and start walking around, greeting everybody with a smile that seems faintly plastered on, but just enough for people watching the video to get what's going on. Another fast 360 when the chorus starts, and it turns into a shot of the band playing, just totally rocking out. When the vocals for the chorus is over, it could zoom into the town again, but it zooms into a classroom at the high school where the main character goes to school. The teacher is yelling at her and she looks like she's about to cry, so when the teacher finally ends their rant she folds her arms on the desk and buries her face in her arms while everyone else laughs at her. 360 again, and she's in a church, with people who are apparently her parents sitting next to her. She looks bored and seems like she could care less, then storms out of the church, annoyed. 360 again for the chorus, and the band is playing. When the chorus is ending and all the voices are overlapping, it shows the girl walking past the shop window, then the camera starts following her. The view gets all distorted as the music starts slowing. When the guitar strikes the last chord and stops, she collapses. People start rushing out to see what's going on, and it's from her view, with the guys gathered around her, then her eyes close and everything goes black. It switches back to an observer's point of view, and it shows people trying to help her. When the intro plays again, it's back to her point of view and her eyes open, looking up at everyone who had gathered, including her parents, her teacher, a few people from the party, a few people from school, and some of the people from church. It scans from face to face for a few seconds, then when the guitar and vocals cut back in, she pulls herself up in one fast move, and it switches back to the observer's view. She starts running, stopping now and then to look into shop windows, and when the song ends, she's burst into the room the Offspring are once again playing in. For the first time in the whole video, she smiles for real, with an expression of relief on her face.

Can´t get my head around you has a great video, but...
I thought that it would be cool like, the same video, starting the same way, but during the song, some very quick flashbacks of a woman yelling like as if she is discussing with someone. then, while noodles is playing the Wah pedal part of the song, the woman walks into the room, (same room as the one in the original video) and then dexter walks up to her and plays the rest of the song right in front of her. is that a good idea???

Something To Believe In...

starts in a kinda... "satanic church", Offspring playing in front of the altar and Atom/Ron's kit set up on it. mixed with images of sacrifices and the like. chorus : we see damned souls burning in hell. bridge : the great priest slitting his wrists and all the others doing the same after him. One looks away, sees something (what? dunno) and runs towards it. the others chase him and finally beat him to a pulp. the last chorus blends to visions of hell.

This board is awesome, plus I had another video idea, so here it is:
Come Out Swinging-it could start off with a shot of the band playing in the middle of the street, where there's a bunch of houses. Meanwhile, a guy who's about 17 or 18 could storm out of his house, and get into his car. This is happening in the background, because the focus is on the band. When the vocals start up, the focus turns to him, sitting in his car, with a look of exasperated thought (ha, I'm so descriptive) on his face. He drives off, then the chorus starts up and the band's following him while playing. When the chorus ends, he's reached his destination, a fast-food place where he apparently works, and the band drifts off. He goes inside and starts his shift at the register, trying to look friendly like he's supposed to. When the chorus is about to start up, he gets annoyed at his boss, who has been lurking behind him and watching his every move, yelling at him all the while, gives his boss the finger, and walks out. He gets into his car again, with the band behind the car. Then, it could do something like Original Prankster, where the camera zooms in on his ear and becomes one of his memories. It's a flashback of the morning, and he's having a fight with his parents. Then it turns back into him speeding off in his car with the band walking and playing behind him. When the chorus begins to fade off into the "midnight, no sleep" part, he's sitting on top of a cliff, and it's night. He's sitting inside the car, with the band outside of the car on the passenger side, playing) staring at a bunch of a pills in his hands--he's thinking about overdosing--then he throws the pills onto the seat of the car at the "one more try" part, walks out of the car, and starts walking away. The focus turns to the band, for the first half of the end. Then it's back to him, and he's walking into his house. At the "leads you, leads you through so you get by" part, he's reached his parents who are worried about him, hugs his mom, and smiles.
Haha, I have no creativity, this one's almost exactly like the other one, with a few exceptions. Oh well. x.X

Haha, I have no creativity, this one's almost exactly like the other one, with a few exceptions. Oh well. x.X

I like this idea. They should make a video like this :rolleyes:

by the general style, or is there actually a CoF video like that ?
By general style, they're all satanic. But their songs are totally different from The Offspring, I hate them.

Revolver-2005?

This board is awesome, plus I had another video idea, so here it is:
Come Out Swinging-it could start off with a shot of the band playing in the middle of the street, where there's a bunch of houses. Meanwhile, a guy who's about 17 or 18 could storm out of his house, and get into his car. This is happening in the background, because the focus is on the band. When the vocals start up, the focus turns to him, sitting in his car, with a look of exasperated thought (ha, I'm so descriptive) on his face. He drives off, then the chorus starts up and the band's following him while playing. When the chorus ends, he's reached his destination, a fast-food place where he apparently works, and the band drifts off. He goes inside and starts his shift at the register, trying to look friendly like he's supposed to. When the chorus is about to start up, he gets annoyed at his boss, who has been lurking behind him and watching his every move, yelling at him all the while, gives his boss the finger, and walks out. He gets into his car again, with the band behind the car. Then, it could do something like Original Prankster, where the camera zooms in on his ear and becomes one of his memories. It's a flashback of the morning, and he's having a fight with his parents. Then it turns back into him speeding off in his car with the band walking and playing behind him. When the chorus begins to fade off into the "midnight, no sleep" part, he's sitting on top of a cliff, and it's night. He's sitting inside the car, with the band outside of the car on the passenger side, playing) staring at a bunch of a pills in his hands--he's thinking about overdosing--then he throws the pills onto the seat of the car at the "one more try" part, walks out of the car, and starts walking away. The focus turns to the band, for the first half of the end. Then it's back to him, and he's walking into his house. At the "leads you, leads you through so you get by" part, he's reached his parents who are worried about him, hugs his mom, and smiles.

they should make a video of them making fun of the aquabats and do it to special devivery, they would all be dressed weird, and they would beat up the aquabats except the aquabats would be not dressed in costume(it wouldn't be actually slamming the aquabats but playing around, i like the aquabats)

erm... to whoever said this was a good thread, thanks a lot !

now another idea : No Hero

first verse : 2 friends, "I" (the principal guy in the story) & Johnny (suicidal), making a small cut on their fingers (like... to become bloodbrothers or something. know what I mean ?). They look like 10 years old or so. Fades to Johnny, now a teenager, alone, slitting his wrists. "I" opens the door into the room, finds Johnny dead on the floor.

Chorus : Small scenes of Johnny getting yelled at, rejected, etc. and preparing to kill himself because of that, then "I", going through the same shit and keeping his head high, then clumsily trying to cheer Johnny up.
Second part : Back to when he finds the corpse, then he's with all the guys who bullied them, yelling at them cause its their fault.

Then he's at the funeral, "speaking" to Johnny in the coffin, and that's second verse.

Second chorus, he goes to Johnny's other friends, like... telling them he did all he could... they tell him its OK.

Bridge : he's thinking about all the things he did with Johnny are worthless now that Johnny's dead. Then he starts screaming like he's gone mad.

Last Verse/Chorus : he looks more and more depressed. Goes to Johnny's grave & kills himself then lies down on the tomb.

Alternate idea : The main character could actually be Johnny's girlfriend.

I've been told it would be a good idea to revive this.

yeah even though is an already active one, i wanted to read more opinions and reasons... LAPD because it would be cool with all the police, riots, and Rodney King... Beheaded becauase chopping of heads is cool! Bad Habit because it is the sweetest song and showing a crazy car driver would rock. The Blurb (a rare track off baghdad) because it is Offspring's worse and should get popularity

well for a while now i have been trying to get into flash animation and one of the thing i want to do(when i get good) is to make a flash animation music vedio for the offspring.

Song: Beheaded


well simple it'll all be animaed have it start dark, then when dexter starts singing red light come on, they play the song for a while then it goes into a flash animation about some crazy guy cutting off people heads and putting them in a sack and draging them back to his house, then the whole dad mom and girl freind parts. and so on,... still a work in progress as you can tell, but i'd think it'd be cool.

hey! you´ve got really good ideas! wish some of them will be put into practise
i´d just like them playing some role in a story, i mean, not just playing as they usually do. i like stories in the videos, they´re funny.

Here is my idea for a Hand Grenades video:
in the bit where Dexter sings "Lets make Hand grenades
from common things around the house
Lets make hand grenades
Listen up we'll show you how"
there could be this guy who is going around his house finding everything he needs to make hand grenades and then he could take an old beer bottle, fill it up with gasoline, add some paint stripper and some magnese and then he would stuff a sock into the top and at the end he would pull out his zippo and try out his hand grenade on his neighbours car.

there was a similar thread a few weeks ago, here it is my idea, (I just copyed and paste my post in the other thread)

Mine is pay the man.

The video starts with the light of the sun upon the desert, and there are shots for each member walking alone and tired. The scene goes to a stage in the desert with noone on it, all around there are big rocks (like stonhedge) and in the shadow we see a jester disappearing. Back to the desert and there little groups of kids coming to the show and the members see the stage. The sky gets cloudy and dark, dexter looks up and it's starting the cool riff... when he says go! the scene goes to them playing the song under the rain and a big crowd jumping up and down. This is more or less how it would be, it's a little bit hard to explain in english, hope you enjoy

well I have some more ideas..like during the chorus there's a cam in the crowd and between the peolpe jumping you see some flashes with the jester, and at the end of the chours when the calm part returns the stage is dirty and empty with no one around it and the sun shinig.....
I have it all on my mind..... just waiting for the band to call me to direct it for the next dvd auhaauhauh
