Cherry Glazerr have released a new video for their team-up with Portugal. The Man, ‘Call Me’.
The clip was directed by Isaac Soloway-Strozier and stars performance artist Jibz Cameron (“Dynasty Handbag”) putting on her own QVC-style show.
Frontwoman Clementine Creevy says: “Lyrically the song is inspired by John Carpenter’s “They Live” and is actually from the perspective of advertisers. It’s about the more insidious ways we are held down by capitalism, and how we internalize it so deeply that we don’t even recognize its hold on us. It’s about greed and the power of shiny, glossy consumerism.”
She adds: “We had my good friend Isaac Soloway-Strozier direct the music video and he had this idea for the theme of the video to be centered around this aspiring QVC personality, which fit perfectly with the message of the song. We scored Jibz Cameron as our star, which is the coolest thing ever. She’s such a legend and so funny. It was a dream come true to have her as our star. My favorite part is her testing out the toaster.”
