“Atiba Jefferson asked me about a year ago if I’d be into doing a board with his photos of Interpol and myself. Being that we had used their song “Obstacle 1” for my part in the video ‘Yeah Right’ I said of course! Neither Atiba or I thinking about the fact that Yeah Right was coming up on 20yr anniversary this year. Wow!.. I remember bringing the CD “Turn on The Bright Lights” to Ty Evan's apartment in Hollywood.
I said to him. “Man I found this song of a great band and I don’t think a lot of people know of them yet. I really want to use this song!” and Ty loved it. He started editing to it right away. I had so much footage and it’s one of the best video parts I’ve had. So thank you Interpol and their management/label for your music. People still tell me to this day Yeah Right is what got them into Interpol and that genre. What an incredible feeling to piece together a video part.
Also I remember being so happy that Ty didn’t show me much of the video. I liked that. I wanted to be almost as surprised as someone who had no involvement. I had helped with a lot of skits so I had a feel for the video but at the premiere I was blown away by everyone’s skate footage. I had only witnessed a handful of my teammates tricks in person. Everyone’s skating was amazing. I am very proud to have skated so hard and worked so hard with our Girl/Chocolate family. Here’s to all the little things that make the big things happen. 🍻 Seasons like that in life are priceless.” - Brian Anderson.
