OK, so a month back, I sort of poked fun at a casting call, seeking extras for a Deftones video. I basically just wrote that video shoots are agonizing and hellish, and that you’d do better spending your Saturday sleeping. But my hopes were definitely high, after noticing the ad called only for extras who were women. I thought, “OK, so the Deftones, a band I have loved since their very first album, is making a video and they just need chicks? This is going to be good.”
And it is a good video; check it after the jump. But it could have been great. Basically, the video is set in a library, and books fall out of the ski. It’s for the track “You’ve Seen The Butcher,” which is a killer tune. And some of the opening scenes contain flashes of bra. Bra being worn by a chick, no less. So immediately, my hopes were high that this video would put that Sonic Syndicate clip to shame, and just end up deteriorating into a full-scale lesbian orgy. And maybe that’s what happens in the last ten seconds of the clip, which were cut off for some reason.
But instead, it’s just a bunch of chicks — completely out of focus — writhing around the band and not getting naked. Instead, they’re just all bowing before Chino Moreno, mouthing “I want your cock down my gullet,” which is basically just a typical Sunday for Chino. And then it starts raining blood. That’s dope, but…I was hoping to see more skin. You’ve let me down, Deftones. Indeed, you have let me down.
