Tegan and Sara are back, this time as adorable puppets!
Our favorite dynamic duo has been releasing videos with poptastic visuals for every track on their eight studio album Love You To Death.
The video for Dying To Know is directed by Nathan Boey and was inspired by Miami Vice.
Tegan says the inspiration came after she watched a TV show about the 80s. She recalls “A scene from Miami Vice with Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas came on. They were talking specifically about the episode in which they used the entire Phil Collins song ‘In The Air Tonight’, almost as if it were a music video. I remember thinking how cool it would be to have Sara and I remake the famous scene. Sadly, neither of us can drive, nor did we have the time or the funds to re-shoot that famous scene in Miami. Instead we tapped director Nathan Boey in Vancouver to re-shoot it using puppets! I think it might even be better with us as puppets than if we had been in it ourselves.”
The finished production shows the puppet Quins riding around ‘Miami’ in a white Lamborghini, making stops along the way and ending up in a speedboat.
Boey highlighted that the beautiful custom-built puppets came from Eleni Creative’s and the entire concept had him laughing throughout production.
