Tegan & Sara Channel ‘Miami Vice’ With Help From The Field Inc. Director, Nathan Boey

If you’re dying to know how the idea for the puppet-filled, Nathan Boey-directed video came to life, Tegan Quin tells Billboard: “A few months ago I was watching a TV show about the ’80s, and a scene from Miami Vice with Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas came on. They were talking specifically about the episode in which they used the entire Phil Collins song ‘In the Air Tonight,’ almost as if it were a music video.”

She continues to recall, “I remember thinking how cool it would be to have Sara and I remake the famous scene. Sadly, neither of us can drive, nor did we have the time or funds to reshoot that famous scene in Miami. Instead we tapped director Nathan Boey in Vancouver to reshoot it using puppets! I think it might even be better with us as puppets than if we had been in it ourselves.”….

“They shared with me their childhood passion for Miami Vice and the rest sort of wrote itself!” director Boey says. “Eleni Creative’s dolls were beautifully custom-built, and the idea of them ripping around the city in a mini Lamborghini had me giggling throughout production.”
