How does an unknown Brooklyn-based indie band score a $50,000 music video for free? The answer involved interns, condoms, and a little bit of luck.

When critically acclaimed production company SuperFad decided to start producing music videos late last year, they needed a video for their demo reel. A company intern had just been blown away by Dynasty Electric’s live performance at a loft party and he suggested they work with the band. Their MySpace was quickly pulled up andbefore you can say “MTV", Dynasty Electric was filming their video for Closer to Contact, the lead single off their new Burning EP.

SuperFad, who has created ads for Nike, Visa, Nascar, and MTV, in addition to the infamous “Get It On ” Durex ad, came up with a playfully sexy homage to Barbarella. The finished video is a perfect showcase for the band’s psychedelic electro-indie rock sound. Over the course of four minutes, Dynasty Electric front woman Jennifer DeVeau must fight to save Dynasty guitarist Seth Misterka from evil scientist Durand Durand and his death-by-orgasm "Excessive Machine". A performance of the band tearing through the song, highlighted by Seth’s cutting guitar and Jennifer’s wailing theremin and Blondie-on-acid vocals, is interspersed between the story.
