Bridge Nine's LEMURIA are elated to debut their new video for the song "Pleaser" today on BrooklynVegan.com
. Directed by Thom Glunt (Fireworks, Anti-Flag), this is a conceptual and interpretive video, as many of Glunt's videos are. The director commented, "I feel this video is one of the most deceiving in my body of work. On the surface it seems so cute, playful and sweet but the overall tone is saddening. I hope that people can walk away still feeling good because the video is about a boy illustrating his love for his mother even if his actions are in vain. We had a great time making this video, the cast and crew got to play with a kid all day and see toys from their childhood in a different light. My inspiration for the video came from the feelings of disappointment I had when I received some of these toys as a child and the idea of "what if they had actually worked like they were advertised?".
