Braves

 
 
I sent Shaun the song and he called and told me he loved it. Then I explained the video concept over the phone and he stopped, then said "Wait...I have to show my cock?! I'm in."

The aptly named band BRAVES gives us a new look at what it means to be comfortable in your own skin. In BRAVES' debut video, prodigal model Shaun Ross exits a dramatically churning seascape to the soft melody of BRAVES' new song. Turns out, he's packing a sea monster sized cock.


We caught up with BRAVES to pick their brains about the provocative video. In the words of Derek Zoolander "Mer-man, pop. Mer-man."

 
 
Convicts : You boys might have some explaining to do. Tell me about the conversations regarding the concept for the video?
Braves : There were a lot of shocked faces and laughter and patting of backs. A little back-and-forth about whether or not to show the full Monty, but otherwise we were all in agreement pretty quickly.
Convicts : How did the model react to your proposal?
Braves : I sent Shaun the song and he called and told me he loved it. Then I explained the video concept over the phone and he stopped, then said "Wait...I have to show my cock?! I'm in."
Convicts : The song Dust sounds very sensual and placid, yet in the final stages of the video you can't help but laugh. How do you feel about that relationship?
Braves : It's interesting. A lot of people laugh. A number of them scream. And some are deeply offended. For example we were in a meeting with a major label the other day, all was going well, everyone was excited, vibrations were high and then we showed the video...awkward silence. We haven't heard back from them. *laughs* But that's okay. Not everyone is going to get it. We want people to have their own experience with it and we feel great about whatever that is.
Convicts : How big is too big?
Braves : Too big to fail.
Convicts : Is this type of humorous video something we can expect from BRAVES in the future?
Braves : It is the kind of envelope pushing video you can expect from BRÅVES in the future. We like to push people's buttons.
Convicts : What comments are you expecting on your youtube channel?
Braves : I hope we get hate-mail. Lots and lots of hate-mail.
Convicts : Why black and white?
Braves : That's just how I received the vision. It's exactly how I imagined it and black and white was part of it. I like the play of dark and light.
Convicts : How would you describe this video to your mum and dad?
Braves : I described it to my mum like this: "You can't watch it." And to my dad I didn't describe it at all. I just pushed play
