Taking Stock: Cassons channels 80s power pop
Firm takes a Queen-esque attitude to making music videos, TS has noticed
TS HAS SEEN some ropey old ‘music videos’ from the Big Four in its time – which we’ve always put down to them trying to take advantage of some convoluted tax avoidance scheme (that’s films: Ed) – but the wannabe One Direction numbercrunchers at north-west firm Cassons have really taken the biscuit.
Their four and a half minute epic, based (very) loosely on Bonnie Tyler’s 80s epic ‘I need a Hero’ is funny, and shows a disturbing amount of production value. TS can only hope that music vid budget hasn’t eaten into their Xmas party funds.
