VELVET REVOLVER Talk About Making Of 'Dirty Little Thing' Video
VELVET REVOLVER spoke to MTV.com about the making of their "Dirty Little Thing" video, the third single from their debut album, "Contraband".
"Basically the concept is the train's gonna be animated and everything on the outside is gonna be animated, and once you climb inside it's gonna be real human beings in there partying," drummer Matt Sorum explained. "We've always wanted to do an animated thing. I think Slash would look great animated."
Motion Theory — a directing team whose résumé includes PAPA ROACH's "Getting Away With Murder" and R.E.M's "Animal" — are directing the video, which will be inspired by Japanese artist Rockin' Jellybean, who designed VELVET REVOLVER's backdrop and is known for his edgy illustrations of sex goddesses and muscle cars.
"He's really sick and cool," bassist Duff McKagan said of Jellybean. "It'll be a crazy locomotive traveling around the planet."
VELVET REVOLVER will shoot the video next week, before heading to Las Vegas for shows on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Read more.
