Moby is looking for some uninhibited extras for his latest music video.
In the casting call posted on his website Monday, he asks for 20 "freaky fun people who are cool with dancing and getting naked." The video - which is being shot this week in Los Angeles - will also feature a drunk king, an "S&M gimp rhythmic gymnast," rollerskating ghosts, goth choir members, and a pair of "obese bearded bikers in red speedos."
And just in case anyone has any doubts, Moby ends his post with an assurance that these are all "real requests."
Check out the full note from Moby below:
so, this week in los angeles wayne coyne (from the flaming lips) and i are making a video for a song we've done together. and we need extras!
if you're interested please contact: email@example.com casting is tomorrow tuesday august 6th shooting august 10th in downtown la.
below are the extras we need, if you think you can help out:
a drunk king: guy with beard age 35-50
s&m gimp rhythmic gymnast: a rhythmic gymnast dressed in a leather s and m gimp costume complete with mask with a zipper mouth. someone who is good at the ribbon and stick thing. preferably a male if such a thing exists. if not a women or girl with a flat chest.
8 rollerskating ghosts: any gender. roller skaters not rollerbladers, ideally people who can roller dance and do a choreographed routine, perhaps a roller dance crew if such a thing exists. ideally people who also would be ok with taking off their costume and get naked but not obligatory rollerskating dance ability takes preference.
12 goth choir members: in their 20‘s mixed sex and ethnicity. don't have to be able to sing but need to lip synch and be able to move with a little it of rhythm as the choir will move their hands in unison. they should be goth. ideally they are comfortable with nudity.
2 obese bearded bikers in red speedos: pretty self explanatory there. need to be able to ride a motorcycle, ideally they have their own.
20 random party goers who are comfortable with nudity: all ages. freaky fun, people who are cool with dancing and getting naked. existing costumes and skills a plus like hula hoopers, crunk dancers various random talents, jugglers etc, trick rope twirlers, stuff of that weird talent show speciality nature a plus. comfortable with nudity is the main requirement here.
a punk rock brass brand: maybe this pre- exist in la? like a steam punk anarchistic brass band?
p.s-these are real requests..
The unique visuals will accompany his new collaboration with Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne called "The Perfect Life." The track will be included on Moby's eleventh studio album Innocents, which is due out October 1st.
