This is part of a music video I directed for a band called Chopper One. The premise was that Chopper One were the house band for a music-based game show. A music-based game show that is a little tweaked. I cut out the band footage here and posted just the game show segment. There's a lot of little messed up things in here.
The host, Sammy Boujelais was played by Christian Jacobs from the Aquabats. The contestants were played by Darrin Pfeiffer from the band, Goldfinger –Gary Helsinger from Green Jelly and my super-actor friend Scot Humphreys. Scot also is in the Air Force and had his own uniform so that was a bonus.
We had horrible production sound, so after I cut this together, we went back and re-recorded the dialogue. The only problem was, only Gary Helsinger was able to come in to re-record. The others were MIA. I ended up basically using two of my friends from a video game company that I was working for at the time. The voice of Sammy Boujelais is played by Chris Rausch, who went on to create the Tony Hawk video game series. I think it worked out better for us this way. Enjoy.
