Romero releases brand new 8-bit parody video

By on October 12, 2014

Stoner-metal riff monsters, ROMERO, have revealed their tounge-in-cheek new video for the title track from their album, Take The Potion.  The band really show their humorous side with this twisted & hilarious parody of the 1980’s Nintendo – Legend Of Zelda 8-bit video games.

See the video here:

The “Take The Potion” video was directed by Wisconsin’s, Aaron Romero.  Yes, the name thing IS weird, isn’t it?  …but this ain’t the Ramones, buddy.  Mere coincidence assembled Romero & Romero, but a tag team of gargantuan proportions emerged.  This video is a combination of classic 8-bit in an almost stop-motion style that is animated frame-by-frame.  A similar style as the one originally used by South Park, the process can be very tedious and time consuming.

Already a fan of Aaron Romero’s work, Romero guitarist / vocalist, Jeffrey Mundt, jumped at the chance to animate his band.  “I saw an ad on Facebook advertising 8-bit type animation work for bands and I had already seen the videos he was doing for pop-punk & horror-punk bands.  They were hilarious, man!  I just knew our sound would work, too.”  Aaron Romero has recently directed videos for Wolf Bites Boy, Iron Reagan, Rebel Flesh, The Renfields & Ratbatspider.

Romero, the band…is currently hard at work on new material and a super-secret high concept video for their as-yet-to-be-released new single “Gold For The Hunt” that was recorded earlier this year.  An online post by Romero drummer / vocalist, Ben Brooks, mentions having to commission a crown of bones for said video, so one can only imagine…
