Sasha Grey Stars in Smashing Pumpkins Video
Grey told XBIZ that she was asked to appear in the music video after being featured in the album's liner notes artwork for Smashing Pumpkins’ last CD, “Zeitgeist.”
According to Grey, “Superchrist” will be part of an exclusive compilation of Smashing Pumpkins songs, available only at Guitar Center stores on March 1.
“The video was a lot of fun to shoot, done very simply and with only four or so takes,” Grey said.
In the video, Grey portrays a dark angel, contrasted against a chorus of models dressed as fetish nurses, played by Linda Strawberry, Kristin Burns, Hanna Beth and Audrey Kitching. Lead singer Billy Corrigan remains shadowed, singing in retro ‘70s rock ballad style.
The music video follows after Grey’s starring role in rocker Dave Navarro’s directorial debut for Teravision, “Broken.”
Grey also has recently signed on to appear in Adam & Eve/Zero Tolerance’s blockbuster collaboration “RollerDollz,” which begins production in early March and is being co-directed by James Avalon and Mike Quasar.
The trailer can be viewed on the band’s MySpace page. For other information, visit the Smashing Pumpkins website.
