Not too long ago San Francisco punks NOFX put out a call to their fans to create a video for their upcoming single “Stoke Extinguisher” as part of a contest. The caveat being that contestants would have no idea what the song sounded like when they made the video outside of a few clues (good ones like “fast part”, “slow part”).
The contest is now over and NOFX have posted the first finalist of the contest; a rather great Lego stop-motion video. The official word from Fat Mike and company reads;
[quote]”After countless submissions, and hours of watching ALL the vids in their entirety, and yes, we even watched the full THREE minutes of a slug crawling up a wall (thanks for that), we’ve narrowed it down to three winners. We’ll be rolling all three out over the next couple weeks and we’re starting off with a pretty fuckin’ cool display of lego wizardry.”[/quote]
You’ll be able to vote for the winner once all three finalists are up.
The song “Stoke Extinguisher” is the first taste of new material since 2012’s full length album Self-Entitled and will be available for purchase starting today.
