Anempty swimming pool and the opportunity of throwing blood and guts at 150 people dressed in white for a #giffgaff mobile video shoot, er…yeah we’re in! Who would say no to that? And the halloween video had us hooked as we spent the day throwing fake blood and guts around a disused leisure center.
Styled for the shoot we’re dressed in god knows what but we look well scary as we take our place alongside trashy brides, mummy’s and some very dapper people in tuxedos. Wait for it, it’s like everything around us is in slow motion as the first handful of blood is hoisted into the air we get the feeling things are about to get pretty damn ugly. Red starts to splash and stain everything and it’s not long before guts and fake brains are flashing before our eyes. Actually scrap that…in our eyes, ‘MY EYES’ we scream…guts are bouncing off people heads…they are laughing, the blood is in their mouth…urgh! Luckily help is on hand and eyeballs are washed out and the mild concussion dismissed from the medics…all in the name of art!
Having fun takes it out of you alright. There’s all sorts of group shots and close ups and mug shot photos. It’s taken nearly 12 hours and 150 people but our day throwing blood and guts is almost over. We wonder off home thinking about the dreams we’ll have that night and have a strange craving for tomato soup. Take a look at the teaser video! Yes #giffgaffguts.
