Calltime was 9am at Lincoln Park (IL) and filming started around quarter to 10. The Pop Tarts and Director, Jonald Jude Reyes, had planned out a few shots that they knew to be part of the music video (for “Cowboy Fantasy”). What was still to be determined was the answer of “how many cowboys?” would show up. We were very fortunate to pull together 5 great guys who went all out to be the best cowboys they could be. In other words, they did whatever was Directed of them and even added their own twists & ideas to the cowboy character.
The Pop Tarts (Jennifer and Bente) came strapping with their own farm girl outfits, as well as enough props to pull off the concept for the video. With lyrics of fantasizing American cowboys, there was a fine line between how sexually charged the video would be while playing into the comedy of the song. So the production played more into innuendos, familiar comedic bits, and funny visuals. Baby oil can go a long way on a sunny day.
Now on to post production! Premiere screening soon to be announced! [Photos in post provided by the Pop Tarts]
