"Wos Kost die Wölt?"-Die Roten Knaben

Musicvideo

“Wos kost die Wölt” is an Austrian phrase which means “How much does the world cost”. 

The band itself, the Rote Knaben, are a young group of hobby musicians, who put their piece of music into the hands of us, me and my colleague and good friend Carolin, and let us freely create and implement a concept. 

The intuition behind the video was the motto “Classy, but trashy”. 

The chorus “A Schippe hei und an Eimer voll Geld” means as much as “The world costs a bunch of hay and a bucket of money”, because of this phrase the guys are also lying in the hay at this parts of the song.

The band combines classic Austrian idioms with modern elements and remains true to tradition. Their instruments consist of tuba, washboard, bass and the so-called “Teufelsgeige” (a traditional Austrian folk instrument). Therefore we wanted to combine modern and traditional elements in the video, such as specially made playing cards with the band members on them.
