The Avon Junkies are looking to produce their next music video, for their fan favorite single, 'Thanks For Getting Fat'.

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.

What We Need & What You Get

Through your contributions we will fund the various aspects of our ambitious video. Including:

  • Set Design & Decoration
  • Costume Design
  • Prosthetics and make-up (the video calls for a very intricate prosthetic to be made)

  • Cameras and lighting equipment

  • Professionals to work the cameras and lighting equipment. (we can’t hold a camera and play music at the same time...we tried)

  • Feeding our wonderful cast and crew (have to take care of your people, show them how appreciative we are of all their time and hard work)

We appreciate all of the support from our friends, families and our most devoted fans. Even if you cannot contribute, please pass the word on.

For those who do find it in their hearts to help us achieve our goal, we have developed a wonderful set of perks and rewards for your donations. 

Including the incredible reward allowing our contributors the ability to have their own demo recorded by Producer/Engineer Adam Tilzer.

This is by far our most ambitious venture to date, and we want to fully execute the video to its full potential in order to satisfy our fans.
