Being in love with someone you can't have is heartbreaking. Becoming a superhero, I guess, would be one way of solving this problem. Unfortunately, the collage of blue skinnys, a peck hugging gym tee and a bright yellow Topman belt is the closest i am ever going to come... I wanted to capture the light hearted love story of a boy and his best friend. Taking me back to my school days and the reason why this song was written in the first place.
I wrote the video treatment over a few beers with some friends, all pitching in ideas (some much better than others). One thing I knew was that I HAD to wear a cape... that wasn't open for discussion, I had a strong vision of ending the video overlooking downtown wearing my homemade Superhero attire (watching kick-ass a few nights previous was all the confirmation i needed).
