Let this be a lesson to all -- you lose in the finals of the Rock And Roll Rumble and your next video will be shot on a giant 1991 Sears Roebuck solid state camcorder.
Ahh, oh well, this new SPIRIT KID video still looks rad. "The Wrong Kind Of Money" was directed by the talented Avi Paul Weinstein, apparently a stealth garage-sale hawk and the man responsible for Spirit Kid's insanely cool stop-motion video for last year's "My Imagination."
Was it really only a year and a half ago that MTV cancelled TRL? It seems like a lifetime since that fateful final
episode, a whimper that had critics all over sounding the death-knell for
the music video. Looks like reports of the video-as-art-form's
demise were greatly exaggerated, since 2010 is shaping up to be the year that music
videos matter again.
