Words from the singer of The 69 Eyes:
"My favorite music videos are basically all Elvis movies. What else you need: good music, beautiful girls and exciting location. When it comes to darkness, I think Danzig has got it in the way I love it – always seductive vixens involved.
To make a video for “Borderline”, we thought to keep those mysterious “black widows” from our previous “Red” video there to continue the story. And naturally to have all that fantasy elements of New Orleans and Louisiana there as well. Elvis ’56 photos, his movie “King Creole”, “Midnight Cowboy”, “Easy Rider”, True Blood – those were basically the links and ideas I gave to director Patric Ullaeus.
Needless to tell that he truly got all this and make this video just a modern day cult movie masterpiece. It looks like my comics (if you ever seen them) and all above! Oh, did I ever mention that Russ Meyer’s “Beyond The Valley Of the Dolls” is also my all time favorites…
Lords Chaz & Eric with legendary DJ Swamp, Southern belles Missus Praline, Athena, Heather & Perle, Mr. Mike Gunn and so on – there’s all these true cult stars who make this one so unique and special. With the Helsinki Vampires of course.
The video will be premiered on 7redblog.com. I would also recommend to see Walt Disney’s “The Princess And The Frog” – another source of inspiration!"
“Doncha push your love over the line…”,
