Music Video Monday: Myla Smith

Posted By on Mon, Oct 12, 2015 at 12:10 PM

Music Video Monday's got those working blues. 


At last month's Indie Memphis MicroCinema Club meeting, which was dedicated to music videos, New School Media's Brad Ellis and Sean Faust recalled the meeting that led to Myla Smith's music video "Can't Say No". They ran several ideas past the artist, none of which met with her approval. Finally, Faust, digging a half-forgotten idea out of his brain, said "What about jookin' in a Jack Pirtle's Chicken?" 

Boom. The artist loved the idea, Jack Pirtle's agreed immediately, and an instant classic Memphis music video was born. Let this escapist pop ditty cheer up your Monday.
