Zach Braff’s New Music Video!
The Last Kiss' Zach Braff has directed the video for Cary Brothers' "Ride." Watch it now!
You might know Cary Brothers from the song he contributed to the Grammy-winning soundtrack for Garden State, the album Zach Braff handpicked for that indie flick. Braff has once again enlisted the unsigned singer/songwriter for airy, folksy gem, “Ride” — the prettily strummed guitar ballad that jangles like wind chimes in a soft breeze — to be featured on the soundtrack to The Last Kiss, Braff’s newest indie project.
The clip for “Ride” juxtaposes scenes from the movie — with all its stars, including blockbusting actors (Casey Affleck, Blythe Danner), small-screen darlings (Eric Christian Olsen, Rachel Bilson), and even former-Real World-er (Jacinda Barrett) — against Brothers as he traipses among various doublewides under a huge (and hot) Western sky. “Although we all nearly went crazy shooting in 112-degree heat in the middle of the desert, we had a blast, and I couldn’t be happier with the way the video turned out,” Brothers told SPIN.com. “In retrospect, the choice of a black button down shirt and black guitar in the blistering sun might not have been my wisest move of the day, but then again, I did get my Tennessee boy Johnny Cash homage in, so there was purpose to the pain.”
On Zach Braff, Brothers said the actor was a pleasure to work with. “[Braff] was so prepared, moved fast, and got some great work done in tough conditions, all while treating everyone on the video crew like family. The man’s just ridiculously talented and a really good guy. It’s my first video, and he set a high bar for any more of these I do.”
