Speaking about the video for "Freestyler", I wanted to discuss it in more detail (after all, the work really deserves it).

How was the video for the track "Freestyler" (Bomfunk MC's) filmed?

The video was filmed in Helsinki, namely at the Hakaniemi metro station. The main character is a young teenager with a MiniDisc player (from Sony). The role of the boy was played by Marlo Snellman. At the time of filming he was 15 years old!

The plot of the video is that in the subway Marlo meets a mysterious man (played by Raymond Ebanks), who charges his player with an unknown force! Now, with his MiniDisc, Marlo can control time...

Of course, the guy starts to have fun with time. He rewinds it - forward, backward ... Stops and speeds up trains, street dancers ...

At the end of the video, Marlo runs into break dancers, but, surprisingly, magical powers do not work on them ... And then Raymond comes up to him, who rewarded him with his abilities at the beginning of the video. After failing to freeze the "weird man", Marlo rewinds himself and finds himself back at the subway station before they meet...

Interesting Facts…

Subsequently, Marlo starred in the B-Boys & Flygirls video (he appears around the second minute), where he once again staged temporary disturbances: this time he slowed down the cars!

In 2019, almost two decades after the filming of the video, its remake was published on YouTube! In just a few weeks, the video gained millions of views ... The work was conceived as a viral advertisement for the YUGO Telenet operator. The new clip repeats most of the scenes from the 2000s version. Both the members of Bomfunk MC's and the actors who played in the original video many years ago took part in the filming ...
