Five Finger Death Punch Go For Laughs In ‘Under And Over It’ Music Video
Five Finger Death Punch took an unexpected turn with the video for their latest single ‘Under an Over It’ — while parts of it look more like a mid-90’s rap video, guitarist Zoltan Bathory claims the inspiration was purely “c**k rock”.
Five Finger Death Punch is known for many things, their sense of humor not being one of them. The Sin City hard rockers show that they don’t always take themselves so seriously in their new music video. Guitarist Zoltan recently told Artist Direct about why they lightened up on this one:
“We wanted to hit a pretty sarcastic tone with it, so it looks like a typical big cock rock video, but in a tongue in cheek way. We put all the “big-time video” clichés in it except for the booty shake… or maybe we even got that, I don’t remember. We do have the party scenes, cars, airplanes, mansions, pools and girls—of course you can’t have a raaawwwk video without your token pool scene. Also, it’s shot from a behind-the-scenes perspective where you can actually see the director ‘trying’ to direct our music video. He is running in and out of the frames, posing the band, trying to make us act a certain way, which is pretty typical of most video shoots and it always annoys the hell out of the bands. It’s an interesting angle the fans never get to see, and adds to the sarcasm of the whole clip. We just wanted to have fun with it, and actually it ended up being a blast and more of a party than a stressful video shoots. Maybe we’ll shoot part two for this [Laughs].”
