This is just too good not to share! High five Will Butler! This little musical short film featuring the ever so gorgeous Emma Stone is the perfect thing to eradicate some serious mid-week blues. It feels like an incredibly chic suit-wearing version of Steve Zissou is about to jump out from behind one of those sailors.
I’m a serious musical theater fanatic, I spent much of my childhood performing scenes from Sound of Music and Annie to my parent’s friends. It also might be the reason my dear mom’s couches didn’t hold up for long. I performed the gazebo scene with Rolf and Liesl in Sound of Music while jumping from one couch to the other at least twice a day. So watching this you’ll see why I’m tapping my feet and jiggling my hips. I might just be dancing around the house tonight. Who knows!
The video was shot on the Queen Mary which is a hotel ship. The sweet little success was directed by Brantley Gutierrez and choreographed by Ryan Heffington. Ryan story and this video’s behind the scene are really great, you can have a look at it here. Will Butler the Arcade Fire bandmember’s debut solo album Policy is available on iTunes and it will blow your mind.
