I just got off the phone with Jayk from Varsity Fanclub! He's been on the set of VFC's first ever music video for their single, "Future Love," since 5:30 a.m./PT but he was stoked to be on set. In fact, he was so excited, he could barely sleep last night!
The video is set in the year 3000, when there are no more concerts! Fans go to ViewPods to check out their fave bands from the past, so you'll see a performance from VFC as well as some hot choreography during the video's dance break. "We actually had to learn the steps last night!" Jayk reveals.
Even cooler, Jayk's "future love" is played by Miley Cyrus' BFF, Mandy Jiroux! Jayk's known Mandy for two and a half years, from when he still lived in Las Vegas. "It's kinda crazy that it came full circle and she's in the video--my video girlfriend!" Jayk shares. So was it weird to have his friend play a love interest? "No, not at all," he insists. "It's totally comfortable, I promise."
During rehearsals yesterday, the boys even had a special visit from Miley! Today's Billy Ray Cyrus' birthday, so before going out to buy a present for her dad, Miley hung out with the boys and Mandy. "She's so nice!" Jayk says. "It's crazy how someone that huge is so down-to-earth."
The guys will be on set way into the early morning hours, filming in crazy silver outfits and shooting in front of green screens. When the video hits MTV in three to four weeks, you'll be able to check out the surprise ending that Jayk hinted at--the secret dialogue in it was his favorite part to film when I chatted with him--and the song "Future Love" hits the top 40 airwaves today!
