Today's Music Video Monday has an excessive number of guitars.

But excessive is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to rock and roll, and if you have a quintuple-necked guitar on hand, why not use it? Zigadoo Moneyclips, fresh off a killer set at the recent Memphis Does Bowie benefit, have released their first music video. "Telephile" was directed by Ally Aycock. "I'd like to thank Zak, Leigh, and Lena Baker, all of the members of Zigadoo Money Clips—especially Jamie Davis, Leigh Davis, all of the yogis, Tyson and High Point Pizza, and finally, Trevor Finney and Blake Heimbach of Hot Keys Studios," she says. "When I was approached by Leigh and Zak to produce and direct 'Telephile', I knew Zak already had a vision for it. It was difficult at times for me to walk his vision so I eventually scrapped my entire concept and asked Zak, 'What is your song trying to say?' Once Zak and I established exactly what his message was, the storyline evolved quite organically, which, to me, is always an indication of a successful endeavor. Creating stories and producing videos is a labor of love—emphasis on love. If your story is making you miserable, you're probably not approaching it from the best angle. By the end of the video process, Zak and I were both enamored by the product and I think the release will establish why we were so thrilled."
