OMG Facts about The Sam Willows 'Keep Me Jealous'

2 June 2017
If you haven't already heard about The Sam Willows (cause they're mega talented & also the nicest people ever), then get in on this cause we're STILL not over their newest psychedelic music video 'Keep Me Jealous'. Be warned, major earworm coming through!

We sat down with the 4-member Singapore represent indie pop band to dish out on some pretty surprising facts about the making of 'Keep Me Jealous' :

That time-freeze shot was insane! Who would've thought #themannequinchallenge could make such a sick come-back.

IT'S BONUS FACTS TIME!
We've got quite a bit lined up (thanks to The Sam Willows who so enthusiastically shared their behind-the-scenes experience with us) so let's get going...


EVERYONE LOVES CHICKEN

via GIPHY

An extra chicken scene was shot! Sandra was in a bathtub FILLED with fried chicken (no offence Tuna), but they decided not to include this in the final MV as they liked Tuna the live chicken better. Yay way to go Tuna!


DANCE DANCE DANCE
Dance choreographer for 'Keep Me Jealous', Gino Flordeliza Babagay, also choreographed the dance sequences in their other music video, 'Take Heart'. "It's almost the same dance crew as well" shared Jon.


THE JEALOUSY MONSTER
The quirky paddle-pop coloured monster mascot in "Keep Me Jealous" was originally an Octopus mascot with its 8 tentacles removed, and eyes re-coloured from bloodshot (yikes). He is now happily residing in Narelle's room. Oh and his name is Paul!



THE COOL VISUAL EFFECTS
The visual effects senpai responsible for the cool explosion scenes etc. had to be on set for 3 whole days! But all that hard work resulted in an eye-catching masterpiece to accompany a fetching track!

Watch 'Keep Me Jealous' again and again (and spot Jon's flying shoe) :
