DD Smash – 1983
A weather-themed clip for a weather-themed Kiwi classic that spent 23 weeks in the charts when it was first released. The quirky video (Auckland’s split personality climate is leveraged to fine effect) was played over and over on Ready to Roll and won Best Music Video at the 1983 Music Awards. It was directed by a young Andrew Shaw (of Hey Hey It’s Andy fame and now a TVNZ supremo). Dobbyn hams it up in Adidas trackies and yellow raincoat, and DD Smash drummer (and 1980s heart-throb) Peter “Rooda” Warren appears in his speedos — of course.
Available on the Natures Best DVD from SmokeCDs.
