American Idol 10 Top 5 Ford Video Shoot Preview

@AmericanIdol tweeted a couple of preview photos from this week’s Ford Music Video.  Who knew Scotty McCreery could pop a wheelie? And Lauren Alaina looks like she’s ready for her close-up.

Hm. Plotline anyone?

    I totally love that Scottie is such and all-American kid. Loves base ball, can make a long shot with a basketball, pops wheelies on a bike, hangs out with his dad. This is why I love him even if I am not a country fan.

  • Elek

    Lauren’s face is a pretty one. I just hope that they do not put too much make-up to preserve her youth.

    And I wonder what that right hand is doing on the front wheel and why Scotty’s jacket is kind of tied to the bike’s chair support?

    I can’t wait to see that new ad.

    Fake wheelie popping? Looks like they staged the wheelie to me.

    I don’t see how unless that hand belongs to the bionic man. That’s not really a wheelie at all, is it? It looks like he just came off a jump because the shadow does not connect with the bike (i.e. there is air between the bike and the ground). I think the hand just happens to be between the camera and the wheel, but it isn’t holding up the wheel. Otherwise, there is some wonky physics going on (you can’t hold a bike up like that unless the wheel is fixed, plus you’d have to be wicked strong). I suppose they could have chopped out a stand that it is on, but why not also chop out the hand?

    It will probably make more sense when see the live action.

    That hand is definitely holding the wheel. You can also see that the bike is suspended from a wire that goes through his jacket. Look to the right of the 316 on the transom window above the door. You can follow the wire down and through his jacket.

  • Kirsten

    You can follow the wire down and through his jacket.

    You are correct. I didn’t see it because the vertical line lines up with curtains. That physics makes sense. The weight is being supported by the wires (there is also a wire running down the left window and attached to the front wheel). The hand is either steadying the contraption or being used to pull it forward (why not use another wire for that, though? Aren’t wires easier to remove in post than hands?). The entire bike is suspended mid-air like a swing.

    Must be fun to get to do mini-stunts and see a little how the Hollywood magic gets done.

    No, the wire is holding up Scotty, and the bike is attached to Scotty so Scotty is holding up the bike. It’s hard for Scotty to balance on a suspended bike and quite difficult, if not impossible, for the hand to hold the bike with Scotty’s weight on it if Scotty isn’t suspended as well.
