Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators have premiered a video for the song “Driving Rain.” The track is taken from the group’s latest effort Living the Dream, which was released on September 21st via Slash’s own Snakepit Records. The clip takes you on a dark comedic live-action animated adventure with ragdoll puppets.
“The idea behind doing an animated video for ‘Driving Rain’ is mostly due to the dark subject matter of the song influencing directors to come up with very dramatic, dark and sullen regular live action treatments that weren’t any fun at all (no offense to those guys). So, I wanted to create something that could be tongue-in-cheek and yet still be dark with live-action animation. We’re all big fans of Stoopid Buddy and they came up with a great concept and treatment. We love the video and it came out fn’ brilliant. Fyi, no puppets were harmed during the making of this video.”
