Hey Everyone,

So the music video shoot was pretty darn cool. Very fun crowd and it was really neat to see what goes into a music video of this caliber. There were a good amount of fans that showed up along with a bunch of passerby's. They did multiple shots, probably 8 or so in total, some views from behind the crowd, then one just on Noodles and Greg, then one just on Dexter, then a last one shooting the crowd from the stage.

Hopefully this is okay to be posting these pics, they don't give too much away. The Assistant Director/MC person said to just not be posting pics and videos to facebook/twitter during the video shoot to avoid potential problems. I didn't get too many pictures during the event since there was a camera on me, but I got a nice video when the camera was shooting the stage. However, I will refrain from posting that to not give too much away, unless there is high desire or a bunch of other videos pop up on the net. I just don't want to be "that guy" :D

If The Offspring or anyone else wants this removed, please let me know or feel free to delete the thread.

Oh, and before the shoot began I was able to meet Greg who was just walking around, seems like a great guy. Then after the shoot I was able to meet and get pictures with Dexter, Pete, and Noodles. They were kind enough to hang around and take pictures for those who wanted them. It was awesome to finally be able to meet them, made my life! Thanks to all four of you for providing such an awesome evening!

can you say this? did they play the song or it was just a playback? because the stage is cool :D

It was just playback over and over again. Unfortunately no live music or other songs, but after all, this was a music video shoot and that's just how its done. You could still hear Pete on the drums a bit though!

yes, it's no shame for playback :) videos are made that way. then I saw the drumkit didn't have mics too. I'm pretty curious about the video and see what "story" they put aside the band playing!

There's that new skull again, I think it's pretty safe to say it'll be part of the artwork. I'm a fan.

Yeah, I think photos are ok. Don't post videos, please. It's so hard already to have that vibe of surprise and expectation!

Glad you met the guys and had a great time!

PS: The guys have been looking very happy lately. I guess this really goes to show they have faith this CD is going to kick some ass.

That is really awesome, can't wait for the video.

I guess I'm gonna have to get used to that skull... not a fan of it.

God, that just makes me think that making music videos must be the most god-awful part of being a mainstream band, hahaha. How tedious! But this particular one must've been a cool opportunity for the fans who got to drop by :)

Nice pics dude!
this video has everything to be funny.



From those pics, and that video clip...it looks pretty standard and doesn't look to be in the direction of too much humor...

...considering they probably filmed many hours, and who knows with the edit, it would be hard to actually say...but does anyone else get a not funny feel from these samples?


ill assume they filmed at different locations and has they in different situations, like perhaps a car...but cant tell from this.

Something like Original Prankster. Day and night.

Not sure I like the new skull, long hair, not sure it will be in the artwork, maybe inside. there is also the normal version on drums...

Oh, believe me, this will be humorous. There is more to the final music video than this concert scene, they had a lot of Actors/Characters (who are in the crowd) there as well as a big black school bus with tinted windows. I am 95% sure of what the concept is from just observing the filming, but I don't want to say too much to keep it a surprise. The video should be 100% "California", which is to be expected

Seeing that video clip really makes me want to put mine up... my clip is over 2 minutes and 1000x better :D From the looks of it that clip is of the last take where they brought extra people in to the crowd, since they were filming the crowd only. If there is huge demand for my clip I can post it but I still want to keep the music video mostly a surprise... also, I felt Dexter judging me while I was recording it :D

Glad you all are enjoying the pics!

The Offspring just put up some pics of the shoot on facebook, revealing a lot more. They show the bus and the party taking place on it, check it out!

Would I be right in saying that Dexter is now wearing earrings again? I don't remember him wearing them at all in the RAFRAG/Splinter era! :cool:

Video: The band plays in a running weird bus, they see some girls having troubles and they go up in it having fun, the party goes on and they play on the beach "till the summer's all gone" where an old homeless man dances too... :D

it's funny how you can't see dexter's face in any of those pics! ahah

Oh yeah, he did stop wearing them and look at him now, eh. Dexta is lookin' so bomb with ear rings :o

Yes he is wearing earrings, I noticed them at the video shoot. I was like "huh, I thought only noodles had those hoop style earrings". He had two in one ear (left?) and one in the other.

First thing I noticed. I like it.

You're doing the right thing by not posting it. The suspense is tough, but it will be a nice surprise in the end (I hope). If you do post it, I will not watch :)


I think the music video may give me a higher appreciation for the song from what I've seen from the photos.

It's a shame for younger me to read, but i've finally reached the age, when i find «Cruising California» a nice song and even sing along.
