“If I Could Talk I’d Tell You”
Lemonheads singer/songwriter Evan Dando set out a list of conditions before we made this video. One was the suggestion that the video should contain “a lobster court/trial, or perhaps just a lobster moment in the video.” I asked Evan about this, and he told me, “man, I think about lobsters just about every day.”
And that’s a good thing, because it was the inspiration for having Evan’s friend Marlon put on a custom-made lobster-man costume and tow Evan around Coney Island in a shopping cart. This was a strange day that everyone seemed to enjoy, and we got a really good video out of it too. Evan’s quite a natural with the camera, and an all-around good egg. As for the non-Lemonheads in the video, I particularly like the shaving clown.
