The official music video is out for “Patrick Wavy” by Pen Ultimate. I directed the video over the summer under First Team Posse. It’s everything Pen Ultimate is, fun, energetic and entertaining! There are so many hidden gems and great moments in it.
I saw Pen Ultimate perform at a rooftop party and this song, “Patrick Wavy” really stood out to me. From it’s fun hook to the line about Patrick Swayze, it lopped in my head and made me laugh. Instantly, I had so many ideas and visuals for a video. I pitched Pen Ultimate and their manager the concept and they were down with it. I envisioned them stuck between two worlds, reality and their wavy minds. Like when moments or objects from your life creep into your dreams. From the emoji beach balls and the inflatable and neon palm trees, to the actions and gestures they make, it’s a subtle back and forth fluid play between the two worlds. Plus, I love anthropomorphism and they were down with a bit of silliness. I included a live performance so more people could see how much great energy they bring. This was their first official video showcasing them as artists and I feel that we really captured who they are.
We shot at two locations in one day; the morning on the beach in the Rockaways and the night in the back room at Forgt Me Not.
Please watch, share and more than anything ENJOY!
