In the celebration of St. Valentine’s and flava flav Romance week, I’d like to spotlight an Interpretations entry that might have flown under everyone’s radar. I personally thought this was in my top ten, if not five list. It may not have won the judge’s hearts but it’ll win yours. This 3 minute video was filmed in San Francisco where people are much more open minded. And if you were lonely over Valencrappytine’s day, then perhaps it was fate you watch this.
I WOULD, AND I DO
JOSH CHUCK – i made “i would, and i do” with my friends casey and morgan, totally for fun. i heard about the contest and thought about it for a bit, thinking of different ways to say those four lines, especially the first one. is anyone else sick of those damn lines? anyways, i tried to emphasize different words, and laughed when i thought of saying it like “not something id DO.” like do, as in “id do her if i was drunk enough.” So i thought of things i had never done but what others may have, and came up with my co-star.
we shot throughout the summer, whenever we had time, and there were some fun times. the dude working in the shop barely spoke english but was pretty much like “you can do whatever you want in here as long as you pay $39 for that butt-ugly thing..” you would think people in san francisco wouldnt freak out just seeing a naked doll, but everyone was laughing and saying stuff and getting their fondle on. the tourists in ghiradelli were covering their kids eyes, and oh yeah, my favorite part is the end, with that pastor. that’s a real pastor, and he’s my dad. he’s a pretty highly respected dude in the community who’s been around for a long time. i asked him to meet me at city hall with his collar on because i was shooting something, and he met me outside. i told him the premise of the film, and he paused, looked at me for a couple seconds and said “we better go in separately.” he’s down for whatever, which is cool. i think it’s because he’s pretty old and feels like he doesn’t really care if people get offended. not quite like morrie in “tuesdays with morrie,” but pretty whatever about what other people think. i hope to be like that someday.
