Andrew McMahon and directors Jon Morris and Michael McQuilken have crafted a funny and touching video for “Fire Escape“, starring two lovable wind-dancing balloon people.
The touching video follows the adventure and love story between two fan-powered dancing wind balloons one would expect to find used as advertisements in front of a business. Not only do the inflatables find themselves madly in love and between the sheets on more than one occasion but share each other company at at concerts, in the park, riding in a boat, eating at restaurants, drinking at bars and of course, dancing on a fire escape. Hilarity ensures when the clumsy twelve foot balloons knock over drinks and set tables on fire.
The two lovable inanimate objects feel all the more real when they’re torn apart by a security guard at McMahon’s concert. Security unplugs the fan from the female balloon leaving her deflated on the concert floor and her mate all alone in a big scary world. Thankfully, a kind hand saves the day.
“Fire Escape” is the first single from McMahon’s forthcoming, yet-to-be-titled album.
