In the video for "I Can't Get Enough," Rooney's first single from the upcoming album Eureka, the band unites both computer-generated imagery and good old-fashioned live action. It's like the "Avatar" of music videos, except substitute N'avi people for folks on roller skates. And reduce the budget by about $200 million. And minus James Cameron.
In this behind-the-scenes look at the "I Can't Get Enough" video shoot, vocalist/guitarist Robert Schwartzman discusses the concept and technology behind the clip. Find out how the video's skating motif matches the rhythmic qualities of the song and how the members of Rooney desperately want their skater body doubles to respect them. Garrh! Showbiz!
