The first thing you notice about the music video for Justin Bieber’s latest single, ‘Yummy’, is the colour. From Bieber himself, bedecked in the faintest of pinks Drew hoodie, with candy floss coloured hair, to the rest of his crew, who could have walked straight off the pages of a Pantone colour guide.
Dennis J. Leise had spent the bulk of his music career playing in the clubs of Chicago, but got tired of having to pay through the nose for the privilege of performing, despite pulling in large enough crowds.
