CCTV Music Video

The Get Out Clause is (apparently; I’d never heard of them before) a band in Manchester. They have no contract, and no money to put together a music video. But what they do have is time and a pretty good song. So they sung their song in front of lots of CCTVs and then requested the footage via the Data Protection Act (or maybe the Freedom of Information Act; reports vary). I’m sure it ate up a lot of time in the playing and the requesting and the editing, but it got all kinds of publicity, including getting me–half way around the globe– to write this about them, so I think that counts as a pay off.
