Maybe you thought local funnyman and “College of Moving Image” expert Will Feinstein ’13 would finally give up on combining aural and visual stimuli to generate “lighthearted,” “viral” “content” after achieving his lifelong goal of becoming a WesCeleb. You thought wrong.
Nearly a year to the date after debuting viral sensation “Ain’t Tryna Say Goodnight,” Feinstein has directed the music video debut for Tonsil Hockey, a pop-punk band Jason Katzenstein ’13, Adrien DeFontaine ’13, and Zak Malik ’14 formed presumably after they got tired of playing Blink-182 songs to bleeding naked men. Please note that none of the aforementioned characters have had their
work “viral” “content” promoted on this blog in any form previously.
Anyway, if you like seeing Katzenstein at his most lovesicky teenager, Malik at his most shirtless, and DeFontaine at his most blonde, it’s a good watch, full of impressively lit party shots that hearken back to “Ain’t Tryna Say Goodnight.” According to Feinstein, “We shot around our houses, Freeman, and Eclectic using whatever lights we could get our hands on. It was a lot of fun. Big props to everyone who came out, the snow storm before Spring Break, and Tobias Butler ’13’s skateboarding.” Feinstein adds that the official “Ain’t Tryna” sequel is currently in the works.
The video also features cameos by Henry Molofsky ’13, Claire Dougherty ’13, Jana Heaton ’14, Hannah Vogel ’13, and a bunch of other people who have definitely never appeared in campus music videos previously. As of this posting, it has not yet caught the attention of NECN’s “The Morning Show.” Bummer.
