Orlando Higginbottom, aka Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, will release his next single Household Goods with a special remix package later this summer via Casablanca. To coincide with the release, Orlando is asking his fans to create his new music video.
Originally released on Greco-Roman in 2010, the Household Goods video has been viewed a 1.7 million hits on YouTube to date – see the original version below.
Orlando is inviting TEED Fans worldwide to submit their own home made Household Goods music videos this summer. The best entries will be selected and edited into the brand new 2012 ‘Household Goods’ official music video.
Deadline for all submission is 30th July 2012 – For more information on where to send entries, visit https://apps.facebook.com/teedfanvideo/.
Here’s the creative brief straight from the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ mouth:
“I’m excited to announce that we’re going to release Household Goods with a special remix package this August, a bit like we did with Garden except this time I don’t want to make a new video…I want YOU to make a new video.
We want you all to get involved and send us your own performance to ‘Household Goods.’ The more outlandish and exciting the better. Be it dance routine or straight to camera performance in a strange location, this is your time to shine.
We’re going to edit together the best entries and make a whole new video. Plus we will also be holding our own mini Oscars with awards for Best Location, Costume, Dance Routine etc. You can do whatever you want. We can’t wait to see what you are going to get up too….” -Orlando
