So I'm pretty sure you guys have seen the interview Mike Lowell did with Associated Press yesterday. Basically, Lowell is sad about stuff. Mainly, that the Red Sox tried to acquire Mark Teixeira. What you may not know is that a majority of the quotes used in the article came from Lowell's new emo hit single, due out Opening Day. We here at Mass Hysteria were able to catch a sneak peek at the music video. Due to a verbal agreement, we can't post the video itself, but here is a brief description:
The Camera fades in on a darkened locker. A dimly-lit Lowell sits in front of a #25 jersey and a Dashboard Confessional poster hanging in the background.
"I don’t think you can be anything but hurt.
I think it’s only normal to feel let down."
Lowell brushes the bangs out of his eyes and strums his guitar, a Hawthorne Heights sticker shows prominantly near the base of the fretboard.
"That’s where the two-way street has to go.
If they want you, they want you."
Lowell raises his eyes to the camera, welling with tears as his eyeliner smears. He stands up from his stool, his Panic! At The Disco shirt begins to blur as he approaches the camera. Zoom in on his face.
"My emotional attachment to the guys on the team I don’t think ever changed.
I’m kind of tired of being in the therapy room doing all that stuff."
Camera slowly zooms out on Lowell standing at third base on an empty Fenway Park field, wearing only his uniform and one black batting glove. Fade out.
