What are your favourite music videos that look like they were made on a shoestring? Where a really compelling idea does more than a big budget ever can?
Still LOVE this:
Calvin could demand a ridiculous budget these days
Avril - Like Everybody Else
Budget was pretty low for this one id imagine
anything off channel u that was filmed in a carpark or park circa 2005
actually, remember that n dubz one when they outdid everyone else by having a tank and two staffies going after each other?
i didn’t make this up. came out in 2006.
middle of the street
bonus hot tub
A brilliant Camera Obscura song.
I don’t think I even paid for the beers for our mates who starred in it when making this video, tbh.
Always liked/never understood this one. Shot by the famous German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans. Basically a video of rats on the underground.
Goblin Cock - Stumped. Can’t have cost much. Fucking belter of a tune. Blew my mid at the time. Stoner Pinback!
80 English pounds
made for free on tour
My absolute favourite video ever. I fucking love it.
