MC Aggro’s Candy (feat. Kimberly Wyatt) by Emil Nava

Tuesday, 13. April 2010 - 12:00 pm


Shot under London Bridge station, the promo for Aggro and Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt’s Candy emcompasses some wet and wonderful UV techniques.

“Having a UV watertight is something I have been thinking about for a while” says Nava. “I have always loved UV and wanted to try something different with it.

“We shot in a freezing location under the arches in London Bridge. A lot of the extras were fans so were there for free and luckily all were really up for it. It was a pleasure to direct a Pussycat Doll as she was a real pro. Aggro brought his own flavor to it as well, which I feel works really well with her style. All the crew killed it and worked extra hard. I hope you like”.

    Gosh.

    I don’t think you could make anything look more cheap and nasty if you tried.

    Jesus christ… the support for young directors is incredible on this site. Its just a bunch of idiots cutting down everything they watch.

    Imagineer… ironic name for someone with clearly no imagination.

    This video is aimed for teenagers who will love it…..

  3. Imagineer

    “Clearly no imagination”?

    Hmm…

    Well, slavishly recreating the already tawdry looking black light scenes from both The Black Eyed Peas’ ‘I Got A Feeling’ video, and Cahill’s ‘Sex Shooter’ is hardly imaginative. You should look them up. I certainly know this director did when he was pitching this turgid mess…

    I mean honestly – if you’re gonna be crass enough to steal ideas, then at least do it from videos that aren’t as bloody recent as those..!

  4. MrMann

    Sorry Imagineer… you’re right… you’re very very very imaginative. sorry for getting your tiny Y-fronts in a twist.

    if emil nava was a TV show he’d be jermey kyle

  6. emil nava

    Kipper and Imagineer I would love to watch a couple of your pieces of art to comment on. I have never even heard of ’sex shooter’ and i have seen the back eyed peas video but I was aiming for a water fight not a party with people looking cool in uv. So links to work?

  7. skip

    Kipper, really – that’s the most constructive piece of criticism I’ve ever heard… in fact you are as articulate as someone who appears on Jeremy Kyle.
    This is video for a certain audience, and it works for that audience, what’s wrong with that exactly?

  8. sophie

    Kimberly looks hot!! Well done, dont listen to the crap above :)

  9. Tragedy

    this thread tastes of sour grapes

    Nava’s a big fucker.

    Got a tenner on him any day. Go on Son!

  11. kipper

    blimey

    not even allowed to compare a promo director to a british institution

    i actually love jeremy kyle…………his vibrancy and snarled manner puts a grin to my face as i sit back and realise how self important i am when put up against these low IQ british working class homo-sapiens

    but then i realise WHY i am watching jeremy kyle at 2pm on a tuesday afternoon and eat a bag of haribo to try and give my diabetes

    Kipper – Are you David Cameron?

    Are you taking to the dark world of promo news dot TV to continue to gather support, violently spewing your propaganda all over the countries face, one sardonic, self-righteous comment after the other before stopping and screaming: “LIKE ME! LIKE ME! WHY WON’T YOU LIKE ME???”

  13. Rose

    I liked it, I like Emil, I think he is good and I would like to see Kippers and The Imagneers work but not to criticise the way they do, just to have a look.

  14. Alan Smithee

    A. Personally defending your work on a forum is a bad idea. You just feed the trolls.

    B. Please don’t encourage Kipper and Imagineer to post any of their work.

    C. Cheap and Nasty is not necessarily a bad thing. Not in the world of promos anyway.

    Note. Maybe its just me but the only Pussycat Doll I recognise is Nicole Scherzinger. It has always bugged me that they call it a group but one member get 90% screen time in their videos.

  15. kipper

    sheesh

    just trying to have a bit of fun

    so much venom and not a smile in sight.

    embrace critisism and abuse……….so many bad film, commercials and promos get made because of all the YES MEN and WOMEN out there……….no one has the guts to say ‘i think thats looks really bad’………we all simply nod our heads afraid if we speak out we’ll never get hired again.

    and i am not bitter, i work hard choose to remain anon……..that is my right in this world of technology and internet and faceblahblahtweet

    whats really dangerous is the stiffling of views………….when seroius and acceptable critisisms get taken off the airwaves or netwaves.

    so let me rant and i’ll let others rant against me and we’ll all rant and be happy

    Ranting and bickering aside – this video is rubbish. Just a handful of words that come to mind – lifeless, mundane, cheap, imitation. I thought this forum was about showcasing, as it were, the best that there is out there, if this is it, then something is definitely wrong here. Some people can direct, and sadly others can’t. Next, move on.

  17. Anon

    I’m no creative/fashion genius..but, Kimberly Wyatt is no Lady Gaga, nor is she a Beyonce..to try and rip that look off and stick it in some 5 pound two bit piece of dung clip with a corridor and surroundings that look straight out of a out of a hell hole in grimey blighty…back to the bench.

  18. Imagineer

    I’m with Artie. Promo News should be about showcasing the best and the brightest in the music video world – it certainly did when it was in its printed state – and not just about postin’ up anything and everything that’s shot in a calendar month.

    Pop videos can be done spectacularly well, irrespective of the budget or country of origin or age of the director. This, however, remains a listless, derivative, lowest common denominator mess no matter how you look at it…
