The official Len YouTube channel uploaded this gem from my past, a behind-the-scenes video from the “Feeling Alright” video shoot.
This was a fun video shoot as you can see from the video above. We flew in our friends from all over to be in it. If you look closely you will see Danny Masterson, aka Hyde from “That 70’s Show”, my good friends Styles of Beyond and of course C.C. Deville from Poison.
We shot this at Leaside High School in Toronto over the course of one or two days in the summer of 1999. The concept for the video was “80’s movies” and there are a bunch of reference to them through out the video. I have long forgotten what and where they are, but if you are a fan of 80’s movies, I’m sure you’ll recognize them.
One of my favourite parts of the shoot was the scripted bit that is at the beginning of the video. In it I play Marc’s brother and there is a bit of an exchange between he and I and an actress playing our little sister. This was my first time acting on-screen, if you can call it that, but it was a blast.
Speaking of Len video shoots, @HagerTX on Twitter shared a post that he wrote that looks at how much Daytona Beach has changed since we shot the “Steal My Sunshine” video. It’s pretty interesting to see how much has changed in nearly 14 years.
