I like the song- very catchy! :) Music video director. huh? I wonder if it'll be a straight recording of a performance or an MTV-style Video. I miss the days of watching videos....I think there may be some shown at 7 am or so.

I've loved Raphael Saadiq from the Tony, Toni Tone days! It seems like the Conchords are building up a following in the R&B community - will.i.am is blown away by Jemaine, and Bret is directing Raphael! Cool...

I just shrug at that. I still have friends who call me "Cecilia" sometimes.

It's a good strong tune. I can't wait to see what Bret does with it. :popcorn:

Here's the music video for Day Dreams by Raphael Saadiq directed by Bret! I can't watch it at the moment though because I'm not in the US...:

Haha, that reminds me of when I was eager to watch the season 2 premiere of FOTC on Funny or Die which was geo-blocked and I tried that same method. Thanks, I managed to watch it eventually. ;)

Great video and I agree Nancy, it's a catchy song. :dance:

I really like the Pied Piper motif. (or whatever childrens story it is reminding me of) the colors and musicality of the video are really nice, and I think the director got some great moments out of the minor characters. :thumb:

The white wall with bold black graphics is very nice at the end.

I love Danny Pudi. He tweeted about the video a couple of days ago.

Day Dreams! Here's a new video I'm in for @rayraysaadiq. And it's directed by one of my heroes Bret McKenzie from FOTC!
