I am John 5 video

The new music videos just keep on coming! JOHN 5 and The Creatures – comprised of world-renowned guitarist JOHN 5, bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix – have released yet another groundbreaking music video in support of their forthcoming full-length album, Invasion, this time for the track “I Am John 5”. The music video acts as a sequel to the album’s first music video/single, “Zoinks!”, once again featuring an innovative blend of classic 2D hand drawn animation and mindblowing 3D computer generated imagery.

As with “Zoinks!”, the “I Am John 5” video was animated, written and directed by Disney animator Brett Boggs (Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph), with scoring by Fred Coury and recording/mixing by Barry Pointer. The mad scientist in the “I Am John 5” video is voice acted by none other than Butch Patrick, a.k.a. the great Eddie Munster, himself.

JOHN 5 says about the video: “In this video, I am transformed into a mechanical monster and controlled by the mad scientist – performed by Butch Patrick aka Eddie Munster – to destroy Hollywood! I’m programmed with my laser beam guitar to destroy everything in my path! You’ll have to watch to see what happens…”

Just like 2017’s Season of the Witch, Invasion – produced and mixed by Barry Pointer and scheduled for release during the summer of 2019 – will be released via a series of music videos. While online, check out more new music videos/tracks byJOHN 5 and The Creatures, cut from Invasion.
