ZOMBIES TAKE OVER DYNAMITE
The Top 40's hit song, 'Dynamite', has now become a zombie
music video parody entitled ZombieNite. The ZombieNite project
involves community volunteers from all across the state of Utah.
SALT LAKE CITY, UT, OCTOBER 2012- The ZombieNite music video project
tarted as a funny parody of the popular song, 'Dynamite', in Wesley
Nelson's home studio. It didn't take long for zombie fans to join in
and turn this parody into an entertaining music video, which is
scheduled to be released Saturday, October 20th.
As a Media Music graduate from BYU, Wesley wanted to do something
different that would make people laugh, so he changed the song into
'ZombieNite' and ended up with a unique hook on the zombie genre by
focusing on the humorous aspects of zombie culture. Says Wesley, "I
really get a kick out of writing parodies. I'm hoping this project
will help bring awareness to the quality of life of zombies because catching a brain isn't as easy as you think!"
With the help of producers Rena Nelson, Tamara Fox, and Jonathan Fox,
and director Matthew Mehr, Wesley was able to create an exciting
project that became a state-wide event, bringing in community
volunteers from all over Utah.
Filmed in September at the Utah Arts Alliance, the video tells the
story of a fun-loving zombie who gets his hands on some spare brains
and attracts hordes of the undead to celebrate the afterlife at a
dance club designed just for zombies. It also stars a particularly
clumsy zombie who just can't seem to catch a brain. Zombie fans will
also be able to test their zombie pop culture knowledge by spotting
the dozens of zombie movie, video game, and other zombie references hidden throughout the video.
Right from the start it is clear that this project is made to inspire
laughter, not fear. As the lead singer gathers his brain-hungry
friends, he sings about how he "throw[s] a brain up in the air
sometimes, singing uh baby, uh!" He leads them in celebration from the
street to the club scene, and even though kid zombies aren't allowed
in the club, this music video is sure to entertain the entire family.
Director, Matthew Mehr, says: "If you ever listened to Weird Al while growing up, you'll love this video".
