A small band from Brisbane, Australia has a viral hit on their hands with their mobile gaming-themed video for their song “Why Don’t We Do Something.”
Hey Geronimo (who used to call themselves Hey Ho Geronimo as their Facebook page informs) is a five-piece supergroup of local Brisbane indie bands, “a Frankenstein make up of Brisbane indie-pop bands, Blame Ringo, The Boat People and Montpelier, and they’re bringing their kooky, upbeat brand of party music to the people.”
And the song featured in the video is their first single. The video is something special – a creation that asks what your popular iPhone games might look like in real life. Included in the music video: Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Cut The Rope, Flight Control, and Plants vs. Zombies. I must say, I think the Plants Vs. Zombies in real life looks like the most fun.
Mobile gaming cosplay? Indie music? What’s not to love about this? I don’t purport to possess any knowledge of how the song actually relates to the iPhone games – but the title is “Why don’t we do something.” It just makes me think of all of those times you are with your friends and everyone has their face buried in their device. Sometimes you just want to stand up and yell “Come on guys, why the hell are we being some lame…Why don’t we do something!!??!”
Hey Geronimo only has 217 likes on their Facebook page as of the writing of this article. I imagine that will change in the next few days.[Hat Tip to Kotaku]
