With awesome starting dialogue: "So what rock festivals are you guys going to this, tonight, this summer?" you know the following Volume commercial was essentially ad libbed. And it was, in fact, shot in Sean Glasow's basement last night in about an hour. But that doesn't mean the video, celebrating the Inlander's June 3-4 music festival, isn't entertaining.
That's right, local filmmaker/musician Ryan Dean Tucker (formerly of BBBBandits) made a commercial, featuring local musicians (not actors, to be fair) Ben Glass, Chris Bean and Rachel Okojie, along with Glasow. Tucker, whose new soulful rock band Nat Park and the Tunnels of Love is playing Volume, chose to base the concept off old Time-Life music infomercials, and the comparison is pretty obvious.
You probably need to watch the commercial at least a couple times in a row right now.
