The king of covers
February 15th, 2012
If you think the guy whose hands turn things into Skittles had problems, well, check out Graham Van Pelt in the latest Miracle Fortress video. His hands burst into flames at the drop of a hat. Y’know, like the Human Torch without the superhero leotard and Fantastic Four membership. Here’s what Van Pelt had to say about it:
I’m thrilled to finally share a music video for “Raw Spectacle” from 2011’s Was I the Wave, one directed by Emily Kai Bock (Grimes’ upcoming “Oblivion”, Kool Music’s “Running Back to Everybody”) and shot by the remarkable Neal Rockwell. We set out to create our own variation on the supernatural misfit story, without the trappings of CGI or indeed much of a budget whatsoever (the whole video was made for around $800). Much toxic by-products were inhaled and minor burns were occasionally suffered, but we can say with pride that the result exceeded our own expectations. Please, enjoy.Tweet
