Salt Lake City, UT, October 20, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The ZombieNite music video project started as a funny parody of the popular song, "Dynamite," in Wesley Nelson’s home studio. It didn’t take long for zombie fans to join in and turn this parody into an entertaining music video, which is scheduled to be released Saturday, October 20th.
As a Media Music graduate from BYU, Wesley wanted to do something different that would make people laugh, so he changed the song into "ZombieNite" and ended up with a unique hook on the zombie genre by focusing on the humorous aspects of zombie culture. Says Wesley, “I really get a kick out of writing parodies. I’m hoping this project will help bring awareness to the quality of life of zombies because catching a brain isn’t as easy as you think!” With the help of producers Rena Nelson, Tamara Fox, and Jonathan Fox, and director Matthew Mehr, Wesley was able to create an exciting project that became a state-wide event, bringing in community volunteers from all over Utah.
Filmed in September at the Utah Arts Alliance, the video tells the story of a fun-loving zombie who gets his hands on some spare brains and attracts hordes of the undead to celebrate the afterlife at a dance club designed just for zombies. It also stars a particularly clumsy zombie who just can’t seem to catch a brain. Zombie fans will also be able to test their zombie pop culture knowledge by spotting the dozens of zombie movie, video game, and other zombie references hidden throughout the video.
Right from the start it is clear that this project is made to inspire laughter, not fear. As the lead singer gathers his brain-hungry friends, he sings about how he “throw(s) a brain up in the air sometimes, singing uh baby, uh!” He leads them in celebration from the street to the club scene, and even though kid zombies aren’t allowed in the club, this music video is sure to entertain the entire family. Director, Matthew Mehr, says: “If you ever listened to Weird Al while growing up, you’ll love this video.”
