MakeOut: You Can't Be Friends With Everyone [ Highly Illegal Edition ]



I directed this crazy thing coming out:
No permits, Half-Reality , One day, All Insane.
Almost beat up, arrested and stomped out for the craft of film.
Hey!
You can't be friends with everyone!
Shot on location in NYC.

Thanks dude! I appretiate that - it was massive hard work - but it's cool when the band lets you do the concept you want to do for them - they are an offshoot members of the big band Jr./Sr. from a couple of years back.

We had someone whose job was the Apologizer - "IM SORRY IM SOOO SORRY" - was their job to say that again and again to everyone on the street and then get a release.

Glad we survived!

Good thing this wasn't a "Voodoo Chile" length song! Talk about random acts of mayhem. Don't know how I would have reacted (as a former New Yorker) to being one of the unwilling participants. Gotta give you credit for even trying to pull something like this off. Nicely done and thanks for sharing.

It got a run on promonews Promo News Blog Archive Make Out 'You Can't Be Friends With Everyone' by John Threat & Diane Martel - Promo News

The holy grail of indie videos (that and antville) - at least when being reviewed by your peers and other production companies.

Hurray!

That's really insane! And you managed to get all the releases? You must be either the bravest filmaker or the more stupid! ;-)

I loved it.

Gutsy move John. I've seen kids running down the street doing exactly the same thing and I just wanted to put a bullet through their head. Perhaps that could be the theme to your next video.
There was a noticeable colour change at 1:11 that was a bit off putting but job well done.

That was a lot of fun. Loved it. Very creative and calculated(I hope). Well done. Instant classic.
