This clip was chosen primarily because I liked the way the girls looked in their dresses. They’re probably about 16-18, at their high school prom. This is a promotional video for Coke, but I just really liked the excitement and joy that the video captures. I suppose in some way it’s exploiting the happiness of the girls to promote their product, but it’s not unusual to do that these days. I figured that the movement of their skirts while dancing would look really effective in a remix, cause it was visually interesting - the swishing and swaying etc. I also think it captures a really important moment in teenage years. It is a bit cliched that so much rests on a prom - we see this in American teen movies today - but in some ways it’s true and it’s a milestone in your teenage years. Coming to the end of high school, in some cases leaving behind your friends, is the first step away from a tribe you’ve just always known, always had access to. From here on in, you have to find your own tribes.
