Musical comedian & Brooklyn staple, Ian Lockwood, has debuted his brand new music video for the underground comedy hit, Orbo. The catchy parody pop song sees the comic & his entourage of fellow lab scientists dancing around Lockwood's digital clone in the form of a limbless orb.
Lockwood shares that the foundation of "this song is really about my own existential crisis about aging and powerlessness, I'm completely terrified by the idea of an endless, torturous digital life, and with advances in AI, the nightmare was starting to look more realistic. But then I started to think, okay, what's funny about this. It's so horrible, it's kind of hilarious."
Ian Lockwood recruited fellow Brooklyn comedy players to bring "Orbo" to life.
The new video was directed by Michelle Gold, who did the VFX with the help of the Brooklyn Comedy Collective.
"Making this video was such a blast, and working with Michelle, Suzy and Johnny was so fun. The dancer boys were incredible -- none of them are dancers, and I simply demanded they show up in the morning and learn choreography… we were deep in the trenches together and found victory -- for the glory of our king, Orbo!"
Check out the new video for Orbo & stream it wherever you listen to musical comedy!
