Boomgates are a bunch of Puppets
I give the new Boomgates video clip for their track Flood Plains a lot of creativity credit points. Brown paper bags act as hand puppets which, with bits of steel wool and yarn for hair, loosely resemble the band members. There is a weird appearance of an Ellen DeGeneres puppet and some pretty basic green-screening that visualises the lyrics. It’s a lighthearted, entertaining accompaniment to a good song from a band that doesn’t take things too seriously.
