Dan Auerbach’s video for “Stand By My Girl” has just premiered this morning!
The video reminds me of something Wes Anderson would direct, but it was actually directed by Allister Ann.
Director Allister Ann takes the “I’m gonna stand by my girl, because she’ll kill me if I don’t” line and really runs with it, envisioning the song as a darkly comic short film about a murderous girlfriend.“Sometimes you just get lucky. A song, an artist and a vision come together and seem to align perfectly, and when that happens, it’s pure magic,” Ann says. “Dan said this was mine to run with, and receiving that trust and confidence from someone I have respected and admired for years was exciting. Dan’s lyrics told the story, and I was challenged to do my very best to bring them visually to life.” –Stereogum
