Brothers Osborne Unwittingly Make a Music Video in ‘Shoot Me Straight’ Clip [WATCH]
For their "Shoot Me Straight" music video, Brothers Osborne took creative frustration and turned it into a "mockumentary" of sorts about what it takes to create a music video. Readers can press play above to watch.
The hilarious "Shoot Me Straight" video, directed by Wes Edwards and Ryan Silver, opens up with TJ and John Osborne shooting down all the music video ideas presented to them by their directors. The bad ideas range from a bunch of girls in a cornfield to an intergalactic-inspired treatment called Space Force. The directors grow tired of the brothers not cooperating, so they take matters into their own hands, opting to force the country duo into filming a video.
The directors and their team of help -- a wacky team of secret agents, in a sense -- trap the Osbornes in a room backstage in order to get them to film their "Shoot Me Straight" music video. When that doesn't work ... well, the situation gets desperate. Don't try this at home, kids!
“This idea genuinely spawned out of us not being able to come to agreement on what we wanted the video to be about,” says TJ Osborne in a press release. Adds his brother John, “After weeks of back and forth emails, conference calls, treatment pitches, etc., we came to the conclusion that we needed to make a video about, well, not making a video. It turned out to be so damn fun.”
"Shoot Me Straight" is the first single from Brothers Osborne's sophomore album, Port Saint Joe. They released the record in April.
