DIRECTED BY: Andrew Adair
For three minutes, the audience gets to witness the becoming of the legendary American drag queen Jojo Baby. The complete transformation of a man’s physicality happens with the unsettling companionship of spooky dolls with bared genitals. The fascinating make-up which alters the protagonist’s face is beautiful, but also deeply worrying, just like his seemingly innocent nocturnal activities. If not for the monotonous and aggressive music, Jojo’s dancing could be seen as harmless. However, it’s the video’s atmosphere which determines its reception and definitely draws the audience in with its dark beauty.
Director and producer working at New York’s Cinema Conservancy, which helps in distribution and production of independent films. Andrew, privately a fan of Micachu & the Shapes, directed the video for “Oh Baby” and only then shared it with the band.
