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…
