Miss May I Premiere New Music Video, “Hey Mister”
Miss May I will release their new album, At Heart, on June 12. (You can preorder it on iTunes.) In anticipation, they are debuting their new video, for the song “Hey Mister,” right here right now. The clip was produced by Thunderdown Productions in Columbus, Ohio, and, according to vocalist Levi Benton, shooting the video was “the craziest experience” of his life. Watch “Hey Mister” below, read what else Benton has to say about the vid, and let us know what you think in the comments.
REVOLVER Whats’ the song “Hey Mister” about?
LEVI BENTON It’s about how I grew up with no father but always missed him. Also, how I came from nothing and, by the end of the day, I don’t need him anyways because I got mine and I can be on my own.
Why did you decide to make a video for this song?
This is by far one of our favorite and most heartfelt songs on the entire record and I really feel people can relate and should know the story.
How do you guys come up with the concept for the video?
We wanted to have an abstract image of a man looking for his father through all the elements and have him lead to his father who he confronts by the end of the video.
What was the craziest thing that happened at the video shoot?
To shoot the boat storm scene, we had to go into a scuba-training tank and basically use leaf blowers and fans to create a storm. The most exciting part, though, was when the boat flips over because it really had to with me in it to make it look “legit.”
