On two cold days almost…no exactly 20 years ago I directed the House of Pain “Jump Around” video. Shot in 16mm reversal for the parade and 35mm negative for everything else. Gina Harrell was the producer and Kevin Brays Hex Films was the production company. Jim Fealy was the Cinematographer and David Daniels was the editor. Non of it was stock footage. We filmed in the parade all day and all the fighting and antics were all documented by us.
Who would have thought that the video would hold up after all these years. A little trivia about the video is that I put a coffin in the bar like an Irish Funeral with the girls doing the jig in front of it and it was supposed to be Marky Mark in the coffin. He was corny back then when he had the funky bunch.
