The hilarious new video by EDGUY for the song “Robin Hood” is available for viewing here. The track comes off their forthcoming album Age Of The Joker, set for release in Europe on August 26th and in North America on September 13th.
EDGUY members and video director Oliver Sommer (Avantasia, Helloween) satirized Errol Flynn’s classic Hollywood film “The Adventures Of Robin Hood” and features bows & arrows, sword fighting, electric guitars and Marshall amps! German television actor & comedian Bernhard Hoecker stars as Friar Tuck and Maid Marian.
About the video shoot, EDGUY frontman Tobias Sammet has previously stated:
“When you decide to do things like that, of course you have to be aware that you will most likely make a fool out of yourself. We had to wear tights and looked a bit like four idiots and one transvestite. But we have come to a point we don’t care so much anymore. The shooting was one of the funniest days in our career, and that means something. It was hard work: the rain, the mud, soaking wet tights, angry horses, a carriage, a lot of travesty, sword fighting, and hurting smile muscles. You gotta check it out!”
The video version of the song “Robin Hood”was cut down to five minutes, but the album version has a running time of more than eight minutes. Buy the MP3 single (available on August 9th) on Amazon.com!
