The Moon Man has landed! A perfect way to end the year… my VMA arrived yesterday… Thanks, MTV. Pretty damn cool having this sucker. In case you didn’t know, the video I directed for The Black Keys “Tighten Up” won for Breakthrough Video at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards!
I grew up watching music videos on MTV… planning my day around their schedule so as not to miss my favorite videos or world premieres. This was a regular daily event when I was growing up. It’s crazy to think about it, but we had no internet. There was no Youtube. MTV was my source for music videos. I wanted cable in our house strictly to watch MTV 24/7… So it’s a pretty damn meaningful award to receive… and I’m honored to be in such good company.
