Coinciding with the U.S. release of their single “Astrid“, Happy Hollows have partnered with professional jump rope artist Mike Fry and Brazilian directors Leo Longo and Diana Bocara on a new music video. The video was shot in a single take with no cuts and features pro jump roper Mike Fry twisting, turning, and flipping to the song.
Directors Leo Longo and Diana Bocara are part of the Around the World in 80 Music Videos project. The duo has travelled all over the globe from Hong Kong to Cairo shooting bands. As part of their time in Los Angeles, they chose to work with Happy Hollows. At their initial production meeting, guitarist Matt Fry mentioned that his brother was a professional jump roper and the idea to have him featured in the video was born.
