Kristian Bush is saving the world from a zombie apocalypse in his new music video for Top 40 and climbing hit, “Trailer Hitch.” For the comical video, Bush enlisted the help of Director Blake Judd of Judd Films (Shooter Jennings, George Jones, Jason Isbell) and famous Hollywood ‘monster creator’ and Special Effects Makeup Artist Robert Kurtzman, Creature Corps (Pulp Fiction, From Dusk Till Dawn, Texas Chainsaw 3D, Hostel Part III, Children of the Corn) to create a ‘walking dead’ vibe.
“Robert’s work is so detailed and so true to what your brain thinks it should be, that there is a moment where I’m really worried that there is actually a zombie apocalypse, because it’s so real,” says Bush.
Filmed in East Nashville’s fooBAR, the zombies take over, pawing at the window and breaking down the door. Bush light-heartedly saves the day by hypnotizing the creepy creatures with his live performance and ensuing a monster mash dance party.
Zombies lurk in every corner of the music video and fans should keep an eye out for surprise celebrity cameos, including Canaan Smith, Larkin Poe, Annie Clements, Twang And Round and Tim Montana.
