Rob Ulitski - 16th Dec 2021

Cody Lee Brown directs a wonderfully eccentric promo for Tik-Tok sensations Hot Freaks. 

The story behind the track and video is an amazing one - Hot Freaks were a locally popular Minneapolis indie-pop band, who broke up amicably in 2015. After recently going viral on Tik-Tok with this hit (which was originally released in 2013), they scrambled to get back together. Having received a flurry of attention from major labels, they have made this video a mere eight years after its initial release, . 

The concept is simple - a one day limousine adventure featuring two great pals, one of whom is lead vocalist Leo McGill Vondracek, the other a quirky bird-dog-owl hybrid mascot character. 

The nostalgic, dreamy vibes are exactly what captured the attention of Tik-Tok's audience, and they are on full display here.
