This quote really affected me on a personal level when Patrick tweeted it. It’s one of my favourite quotes of all time.
I’m broadcasting my radio show Perri’s Pop Punk Party at 4:00 today until 5:00 on Pratt Radio. You can tune in using this link http://prattradio.tumblr.com/listen
"Patrick wanted something different and unique and was up for anything. When he agreed to this concept, I was elated and terrified. Finding and pulling these people together was quite a challenge (and people thought I was crazy when I started hunting for a 3-legged dog). Patrick didn’t know exactly what we were going to do until the day of the shoot, and I tried to keep him as removed as possible from everyone until he was on camera - so they could have that first moment together on film. I was very fortunate that he allowed himself to be put in such a vulnerable position for his own music video - doing new stuff for the first time on camera with these experts. I also asked him not to practice off-camera (he learned stuff fast - by the time he was done with this he could speed stack, yo-yo, and nunchuku with the best of them)." - Director Joe Wein
