Avon Junkies have just completed their third album and are gearing up to produce a music video for the first single, Thanks For Getting Fat.
We have all been dumped; all had our hearts broken by the most beautiful girls and the most handsome guys; even after we have gotten over it we still dread the possibility of running into them again. We picture them as gorgeous as we remember them, even more so considering our luck. With an equally attractive new significant other on their arm. However, every so often a broken hearted soul is given a break, when they finally encounter that long lost love once again, only to realize they let you off the hook….by….well…..getting very fat.
Thanks For Getting Fat follows a sad sack still obsessing over his lost love, the one that got away. Turns out, he got away just in time, when years later, he discovers that she sure has let herself go.
Avon Junkies are coming off the wonderful success of their previous album, The Merchant’s Tale, featuring the singles Let Me In & BullShit. Each single had its own fan pleasing music video. The video for Bullshit was even nominated for Best Music Video at various Film & Video Festivals. However, the videos from the last album were done guerrilla style, low budget. This time, Avon Junkies and their creative counterparts want to have the opportunity to fully realize the band’s vision for the video. We are approaching the production as inexpensively as possible, but still, in order to effectively execute the story for our fans we will need a modest budget to work with. We are fully confident that by gaining the funds necessary we will deliver our best video to date, and our fans, old and new, will not be disappointed.
