ESCOTT & LANCE GET FUNKY WITH JOHN BUTLER TRIO
Director duo Damon Escott and Stephen Lance have just completed a new clip for John Butler Trio. Funky Tonight is an infectious track that overwhelms Donald, a daydreaming ordinary office worker. In his dream John Butler Trio enter and jam in his inner ear. Donald is soon overcome by the tune and forced to bust out of his conservative image.
His colleagues watch in surprise as Donald dances outrageously, transforming the office into a stage… Funky Tonight was performed recently at the Make Poverty History concert held at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne. Other artists featured included Pearl Jam (joined on stage by Bono), Eskimo Joe, Evermore, Hilltop Hoods, Paul Kelly, Kev Carmody and Sarah Blasko.
Escott & Lance shot the clip in Brisbane just prior to the 2006 ARIA Awards where they picked up the award for Best Music Video - the top prize in Australia for film clips.
