Even if you’re not a fan of his music, Guy Pearce is serving up some serious morning TV infomercial realness in the video for his new single ‘Fly All The Way’. Introduced by ‘The Morning Show’ host Larry Emdur (the real one), Guy sets about raiding the dress up box to play the roles of informercial spruikers, both male and female.
There’s the chef espousing the latest range of Guy Pearce meat, the Steve Jobs look-a-like wanting you to upgrade to the latest shiny silver product, an auburn-bobbed lady showing you how to tone your face; even a hunky hairy-chested fitness instructor showing you the sure-fire way to get that ab definition you’ve always wanted.
And long-time ‘Neighbours’ fans will be no doubt be a little moist over the appearance of former co-star Annie Jones (who played his character Mike’s love interest Jane on the soap) as his wife in one of the scenes.
There’s a serious message about consumerism behind all of this, but it’s all so very entertaining and, like good little robots, we want to immediately reach for our latest shiny silver thing and download the single on iTunes.
