Big Brother watching you? Get him to promote your band!

“The Get Out Clause” are an upcoming UK band who are currently unsigned. They took a brilliant and, I’m sure, soon to be much-copied method to producing their own video.  Unable to hire a production crew for a standard 1980’s era MTV music video, they performed their music in front of 80 of the 13 million CCTV “security” cameras available in England, including one on a bus.

They then used Britain’s Data Protection Act to request the footage that was shot of them.  Grab some decent and inexpensive video editing tools (say. . . an iMac) and presto!  They got themselves a unique and in my opinion quite interesting music video.
