Video of the Moment #960: Howler

Boys will be boys was my initial reaction to the new NSFW or kiddies Howler video for ‘Told You Once’ (I made the mistake of queueing this video up at work – oops), but director Robert Semmer explains it so much better:

While lurking in the dark corners of the Internet I became fascinated with those little windows that constantly pop up offering “live adult web chats”. Whether illegally pirating music or looking at leaked photos of naked celebrities, without fail I’d get a visit from a questionably dressed young lady in her basement begging to have some fun on the old PC. I actually started to think about who these people were and what actually happens if you give them your credit card number – aside from the identity theft.

“I presented these very relevant and important questions to my pals in Howler who instantly agreed the topic needed further exploration. Rough Trade put up some money, my producer put down his credit card, we screened captured everything and now there’s a video for ‘Told You Once’.”

“In the end we learned you truly can get people to do whatever you want as long as you have an account number, expiration date, and a three-digit security code.”
