Animal Magnetism in Locally Shot Music Video
Joshua Wicker's cover features some cool creatures
It's not everyday that you see a beaver, a dog, a tiger and turtle walking down the streets of Downtown Jacksonville.
But that's the adorable image Jacksonville musician and photographer Joshua Wicker assembled for his music video of "Royals," a cover of the song by New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde (aka Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor).
Wicker convinced four lanky dudes to don big mascot costume heads while hanging out on streets, parks and rooftops around town: Kyle Horton as the beaver, Reid Parrish as the dog, Blake Parrish as the tiger and Chandler Merritt as the turtle. In one scene, a couple of the cool creatures leap-frog on the Northbank Riverwalk.
Check out the video for an amusing look at Jacksonville set to a seriously good soundtrack.
