From award winning director Andy Chen and Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush star Stephen Kramer Glickman, this music video, produced by Reigncane Vodka, is chock full of special guest cameos, old west pop culture references and a bucket of fake blood.
Interview of the star, Stephen Glickman:
What inspired you to make this cover in a country western theme?
Stephen: "I am a big Johnny Cash fan and when I started singing the song closer to his style, it just felt right. My producer Buddy Gibbons could tell we had tapped into something special and took it from there. We just leaned in to the style. I’m so happy with how it turned out.”
How long ago did the idea for this song and video come about?
Stephen: "About a year and a half ago I was on a date with a girl and she said I shouldn’t sing “Montero” because it was written by the devil. I told that girl to get the fuck out of my car. That was enough inspiration for me to pursue it.”
What was the craziest moment of doing the shoot?
Stephen: "there was one incredibly difficult shot to get and when we got it on the first take, we all did shots of Reigncane vodka to celebrate. It’s the moment where I shoot a guys beer mug, and it pours out comedically. It’s one of my favorite moments in the video.”
What's next for you?
Stephen: "my new series The Guest List drops July 20th and it’s hilarious. So many talented people involved. Can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
