Oh My Gosh

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Music Videos / Direction / 2006

Mat Kirkby's treatment for ‘Oh My Gosh’ was a one-paragraph email to commissioner Phil Lee: "Yo Phillis, just read the brief. Nice! Hot women, high energy. Yes, I can see it all now. Except they've got wrinkly stockings and they're wearing cardies. Yes, I can see it. And they're in an old people's home." The video shows Vula, the guest vocalist on the song, as an 82-year old woman. She is living in a senior citizens home and has not lost any of her passion for life. She hangs out in the dayroom with her girlfriends and tells them all about this new bloke she has her eye on. He is fine. Nice little hat. Just the one walking stick. Plenty of bling. She wins him over by knitting him a scarf.
