This is version 1 of a music video I made back in late 1999. It's my first real character profile music video. Almost a serious attempt at one, to boot!
The premise of the video is one that attempts to make sense of the somewhat disturbed character of Vegeta. The story shows him abusing his son, Trunks, being pretty self-destructive, suicidal, and of course the major pride issues come into play as well.
My desire to make this video basically stems from the song itself: Break Me. With this song in mind, there are basically two jokes that make up the video: Vegeta "breaking" himself as he commits suicide against Buu, and at the end of the video when #18 breaks his arm. Pretty simple, neh?
This thing starts off with the music playing, with a chessy sound bit placed on top of the intro, for comical effect. The beginning is mostly made up of money-powering-up shots, because I really didn't know what to do in the intro. :P
The rest of the video uses scene that make a bit more sense. One of my favorite parts is Vegeta's "nightmare" scene, and his stone body collapsing on to the ground. Yeah, that's more or less it.
In the end, the video deals with Vegeta's psychological troubles (yes, I personally do like to believe DBZ is deeper than it really is ^^), and how they drive him batty! Had the timing and video quality been better, this would be something I'd be super duper proud of. But, a remake of this video would later come...
