KORN: 'Making The Video' For 'Twisted Transistor' To Air In November

According to KornUnleashed.net, MTV2 will air a "Making the Video" program focusing on KORN's video for "Twisted Transistor" on Tuesday, November 8 at 9:00 p.m. EST. Check out photos from the video shoot, which took place on October 5 at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, California, at Wire Image.

In a recent MTV.com interview, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis spoke at length about the video shoot.

"It's basically a video with hip-hop stars playing us," Davis said. "And they're doing a really good job. They've done their homework. Such a good job, in fact, that it takes a few seconds before realizing, 'Hey, that's Lil Jon singing, not Jonathan Davis.' 'And that's Snoop Dogg in the dreads and bodysuit, not Munky.' 'And that's Xzibit wearing Fieldy's signature headband and David Banner banging on David Silveria's drums.' "

"He's got the Dickies and the chain on, it's hilarious," Fieldy said of Xzibit. "Just watching Xzibit holding my bass straight up and down and jumping around, he's really into character. They're eating it up, man. It's gonna be the best video ever."

Davis said the concept comes from being frustrated that rock videos don't get as much airtime as they used to. Director Dave Meyers (best known for Missy Elliott's masterpieces) refused to give up too much about what happens in the clip, but he said the rappers took a complete plunge into the rock world, "so it's a really surreal kind of mind-twisting video."

"It's like an alternate world," David Banner added. "It's a day in the life of the actual group, so they took little quirks about everybody's personality and amplified it a whole lot. David the drummer is the pretty boy in the group, so he keeps a mirror around, he has to make sure that he's tight before he goes onstage."
