I’ve written before that I reckon scribes can learn a lot from narrative-based music videos: the specs I read are often convoluted in the extreme in terms of plot and Bang2writers sometimes confess they’re not sure how to simplify their stories. A music video then is a great way of showing how simple yet effective a story *can* be.
So check this one out. The story’s simple as hell, draws on nostalgia big time for my generation AND has a great twist at the end… Yet crucially is not such an “in” joke that anyone who doesn’t “get” that in-joke is left out in the cold – it’s just a video of some people dancing in odd clothes. Nice*.
* Miss the branding though: “Utah Saints! U-U-U-Utah Saints!” ; )
