A couple of days ago, we shared a public invitation to come to the club and participate in 2CELLOS new video shoot. here are the results of that evening…
Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser invited all of Pula to put on their rock or heavy metal clothes and stop by the club Uljanik for free beer. With the help of the crowd, 2CELLOS filmed scenes for their new video, the cover of the song “The Trooper’ by the legendary band, Iron Maiden.
Located in Pula, at the club Uljanik, 2CELLOS filmed the video for Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper”.
Stjepan Hauser believes it will be seen more than “Thunderstruck” which went viral on YouTubewith over 20 million views. In turn, the viral hit also helps MedVid production, those behind this video. And though they initially did not want to reveal what the song was – it leaked out.
The audience members, mostly younger females, came to the rockers release to participate in the video, in which the popular duo first gets booed and hit with plastic cups on stage when the club begins to run classic. But soon Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser start to play the furious rock song and it begins to slowly appeal to the audience and in the end, blows them away!
The audience listened carefully to the instructions Sulic and Hauser gave, as well as the director, so that the recording went rather smoothly. The video shoot was an opportunity for the fans, especially female fans, to ask for an autograph and take pictures with their idols.
“The Trooper” was Iron Maiden’s ninth single, released on 20 June 1983, and the second from their 1983 album Piece of Mind. It was one of only a few songs to get much radio airplay in the US, thus peaking at No. 28 on the US Mainstream Rock charts. It also achieved success in the UK, peaking at No. 12 in the UK Singles Charts as well as gaining a much better reception than the band’s previous single, “Flight of Icarus”.
Recording the video in the club Uljanik was Stjepan Hausers idea. Stjepan was born in Pula, and decided on the Pula club.
“We were just looking for one rock club. I was in Zagreb, and places were either too small or too big. This one perfectly captures the atmosphere we want to achieve in the video.”
If you ignore the couple of glasses which flew toward the stage (free beers have an effect on this behavior) it seems that 2Cellos were very well received by the rock audience. We are in anticipation of the video, scheduled for world release this fall and directed by Kristijan Burlović (Kiki), who we see in the above video clip.
