The latest Collision video and a dark tale of power and money corrupting a simple farmer when he is given a magical golden guitar.

Source (http://www.encounters-festival.org.uk/Festival-Programme/Guest-Screenings/Collision-Films.html)

Luckily for a bunch of people here it's a simple farmer and not a pig farmer ;). Sounds cool, hopefully they are in it though.

Somehow, the words "dark tale" and "farmer + golden guitar" don't fit quite that well together in my head :/ but I have a lot of faith in Chris. Some of his earlier work is awesome.

Interesting to say the least, kind of sounds like a Jack Black movie or something. Can't wait to see the final result.

haha. Tenacious D was my first impression. It would be AWESOME is Jack Black made a cameo in this one.

It sounds cheesy, but I think I'm gonna like it. I have a soft spot for cheesy funny music videos.

Wow it sounds like pretty heavy-handed symbolism. Farmer = roots of American society. Golden guitar = draw of wealth and power. Tah-Dah! It's social commentary even a 14 year old can get!

yep...i guess we are used to it :D right?

I was more playing around than complaining. :P I just hope it's a good video. And I like that it's going to be dark, in keeping with the whole feel the album has had. Even Hammerhead, though I hate the video, I like the fact that it's at least dark in its imagery.

Echoing the thoughts of someone else here: This really sounds like a Tenacious D video, but from watching his Chris Hopewell's other videos I'm guessing it is much darker and not funny.

I don't know if someone said this already, but the fact that the length of the video is known must mean it's REALLY close to being released.

Well, I hope it will be an acting video with actors, with less animation as possible. Also I've said it before it seems that most of Collision's contain animated backgrounds/visuals with artists/actors playing.
I can't see how YGGFK video could be dead serious. I like the plot. A (probably honest) farmer gets a golden guitar and with it's corrupting powers turns into a greedy influential bastard. Yes, it can't be dead serious.

Wow, dancing chicken? That would be weird, no doubt.

Okay, I understand there will probably by symbolism and metaphors and all that jazz, but I understood the song to be about a kid (around middle school age) who is bullied, but then opens up a can on the bully(s) and they all see the Lightning in his Eyes and everything.

There are a couple threads concerning the interpretation of the song, check them out if you're interested.

In my view, the song is more political in nature. The "kid" in the song, represents someone with the personality that seems to infect the corporate/ political world, ie using any means necessary to get ahead.

That and it's in two different threads, therefore it should be slightly different.

Idiot. Everything was nice around here and then you decide to try and pull something and fail miserably. At least you are still consistent.

I was kidding around. I thought the two similar posts were one post that got edited. And thinking this, I kinda just found it a little funny based on what he said about bets. Didn't think I'd be involved with several people in a conversation about it. And I never edited anything IamSam wrote.
