Videotaping can be tedious, and sometimes the chemistry doesn’t work out, but you never know what talent is lurking on set. That’s the basis for Corey Taylor‘s new cameo-filled video for “Samantha’s Gone.”
Taylor and his band have a bit of fun with the video trope, with each of his solo band members taking roles on the team as a motley crew of rockers take the stage to perform “Samantha’s Gone.” But when the director, played by Ski School and Summer School star Dean Cameron, causes the band to take a break, Corey and his cohorts seize the day, take the stage, and seemingly wow the rest of the team and the director. . or not?
In addition to Cameron, the clip includes guest cameos from Steel Panther, Vanderpump Rules’ Tom Sandoval, Alias actor Greg Grunberg, L.A.’s Ace Van Johnson. Guns and Faster Pussycat, Travis Miguel, and Jonah Nimoy from Atreyu.
Taylor told Bravo’s Daily Dish: “The video for ‘Samantha’s Gone’ had two purposes: to poke fun at so-called ‘indie rock’ bands and to get all my friends together to hang out and have a good time. fun and social distancing. Seeing the first ‘band’ was great, then getting fired from our OWN song in favor of Steel Panther was the icing on the cake, can’t wait for everyone to see it! ”
“Samantha’s Gone” appears on Taylor’s solo album CMFT, which is currently available here.
In other Corey Taylor releases, the rocker has endorsed a new limited-edition coffee collaboration. The singer collaborated with Menotti’s Coffee in Venice, California for CMFT Private Blend. She can order a bag from Taylor’s web store.
