Ever dreamed of being in a music video?
Ever dreamed of being in a music video for 30 Seconds to Mars?
Well, if you answered yes to the second question then you might just be in luck because the band are currently looking for fans to be in their new music video for “Do Or Die.” But before you start packing your bags or making plans, they have posted some guidelines to be the lucky few to be in the video. The biggest catch is that those wanting to be in the video have to get lyrics of the song tattooed; we know, very extreme.
Read the full message the band released below:
Get the lyrics of DO OR DIE tattooed and be featured in the Official Lyric Video — ALL SUBMISSIONS must follow these guidelines:
• Filmed by the HIGHEST RESOLUTION CAMERA possible.
• Footage must be as STILL as possible (not shaky!)
• Use a TRIPOD if possible to film your clip
INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING when recording your video:
• Your name
• Where you’re from
• Say “I AM THE ECHELON” before your tattoo footage
• Tell us WHY you’re getting the lyric tattooed
• And be sure to get CLOSE UPS of the area tattooed BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER
Submit your video clips via email OR linked via YouTube (as an UNLISTED VIDEO) to marsDOorDIE@gmail.com, PLUS attach THIS Documentary Release Form [ Right click + Download here ] from both YOU and the TATTOO ARTIST.
Remember, you must abide by all of the above to be fully considered, so please make sure you’ve read every line! DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS MONDAY, JULY 29!
While some fans might be die-hard Echelon members willing to do anything for their favorite band, many have criticized the band about this. Some even commented on the post with such messages as “I like the band but I don’t think this is a good idea at all” and “It’s absolutely irresponsible and probably the worst thing Mars has ever done.”
If this was your favorite band, would you be willing to tattoo yourself just to be in a music video? We say, hell no.
