KORN - Photos From 'Twisted Transistor' Video Shoot Posted Online
Wire Image has uploaded a number of photos from the video shoot for KORN's
new single, "Twisted Transistor", featuring rappers Lil Jon, Snoop Dogg,
Xzibit and David Banner. Check them out at this location.
In a brand-new MTV.com interview, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis spoke at
length about the video shoot, which took place Wednesday (October 5) at
the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, California.
"It's basically a video with hip-hop stars playing us," Davis said. "And
they're doing a really good job. They've done their homework. Such a good
job, in fact, that it takes a few seconds before realizing, 'Hey, that's
Lil Jon singing, not Jonathan Davis.' 'And that's Snoop Dogg in the dreads
and bodysuit, not Munky.' 'And that's Xzibit wearing Fieldy's signature
headband and David Banner banging on David Silveria's drums.' "
"He's got the Dickies and the chain on, it's hilarious," Fieldy said of
Xzibit. "Just watching Xzibit holding my bass straight up and down and jumping
around, he's really into character. They're eating it up, man. It's gonna
be the best video ever."
Davis said the concept comes from being frustrated that rock videos don't
get as much airtime as they used to. Director Dave Meyers (best known for
Missy Elliott's masterpieces) refused to give up too much about what happens
in the clip, but he said the rappers took a complete plunge into the rock
world, "so it's a really surreal kind of mind-twisting video."
"It's like an alternate world," David Banner added. "It's a day in the life
of the actual group, so they took little quirks about everybody's personality
and amplified it a whole lot. David the drummer is the pretty boy in the
group, so he keeps a mirror around, he has to make sure that he's tight
before he goes onstage."
