Whole Lotta Bruce

I’m Bruce Willis

I’ve wanted to make a video of this song for so long and I think it needs to happen this summer. I’ve stopped and started two or three times trying to figure out how to go about it without making it just a meaningless re-edit of Die Hard or highlight reel of his other rolls. Bruce Willis is John McClane is Bruce Willis. He peers around corners, he is beaten senseless, he leaps from exploding buildings, he slowly looks up and into the camera, turns slightly with a smirk. The song keeps with my own fascination with Hollywood heroes, the gray area between man and pop culture icon, swirling around the Die Hard narrative and the Bruce Willis narrative.
