The Superjesus have created a new video to mark the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with a piss-take sending up all of the conspiracy theories.
“I’m fascinated with moon landing conspiracies,” Sarah McLeod said in a statement. “When researching on the net one day I came across a Stanley Kubrick ‘confessional video’. No one knows if the footage is legit or not, but in it, he confesses to staging the moon landing on the set of 2001 A Space Odessey. He called the fiasco his ‘greatest masterpiece’. The confession video was designed to be kept under lock and key, only to be released after his death. Upon further research I found an article with the headline LANDING ON THE MOON IS SCIENTIFICALLY IMPOSSIBLE…and boom, out came the song!”
The song is ‘The Impossible’.
The video is an imagining of how the filming for a fake moon landing may have happened. “It was really fun to work on this clip because the imagery is so strong,” says McLeod, “my girlfriend and I wrote and directed the clip – we cast the band as Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Stanley Kubrick, and I put myself in as a side comedy spin-off story as the makeup artist who’s desperately in love with Neil Armstrong. It was a very funny shoot!”
