Day 5- Favorite MCR music video

True to form, I'm going to cheat - just slightly - on this one. I can't separate the Na Na Na and Sing videos, nor would it make sense to do so when they're two installments (so far!) of the same story. It's funny - with TBP, I love the music but was distinctly underwhelmed by the videos. For Danger Days. it's completely the other way round, and I just wish they'd come up with a third video. I'm still hoping! Come on, Gerard - I know you're all being zipped into BLInd bodybags at the end of Sing, but surely a trivial technicality like being dead isn't going to stop you?

Bonus: download link for a 4-minute 'making of' video for Na Na Na. They're so clearly having a great time, messing around in the desert with costumes and props. And if you watch very very carefully, Gerard's extra short shorts make a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance...

SUCH GREAT VIDEOS. Re: the third one: [ profile] mistresscurvy went to hear Grant Morrison speak a couple of months ago and she asked him about the third video, and he said that something had happened during the filming. He didn't specify (and it didn't sound like it was anything seriously bad or anything), but it makes me wonder if the footage ended up unusable for some reason? IDK. I totally still want the next chapter!

Hah, so being dead didn't stop them! *g*

I wonder what it can have been that went wrong? And I'll be disappointed forever if we never get to see the rest of the story...

I also love their earlier videos with Marc Webb, but wouldn't have been able to decide between INOK, Helena and The Ghost of You. And then I have a very soft spot for their home-made video for Vampires Will Never Hurt You. Baby!band, all in their black suits - and apparently dying from paint fumes from the set they'd only just finished painting black...

I separate Na Na Na from SING cause SING kinda traumatizes me. I don't like to see them die. It's like...same as I don't like death fics. xD

About the 3rd video, the thing is: according to some people, Grant said that something came up and they didn't shoot/didn't finish it (not sure). But then other people swear that's not what he said, that they did shoot it and Grant just seemed to be avoiding to say much about it. Both versions came from people who said to have asked him. idea! I guess if nothing happens from now until BDO...then there's no 3rd video?
