Filmed entirely in the back of a moving truck, director Henry Kinder explains, “We considered a few different options for how to pull this off, but at the end of the day, the only way to achieve the natural claustrophobia amidst the constructed world that we imagined was to practically build the apartment into the actual bed of a truck. This choice created tight parameters within which we had to work, but it felt like the only way to achieve exactly what we wanted: to visually represent this state of unsettled displacement that we were both feeling at the time and that we were hearing in the song.”

Don’t get beat by Beats! Americans spend billions on headphones every year, but they are getting beat by a system that mistakes brand names for quality. Today, EVEN, a personal audio company with breakthrough adaptive sound technology, is pulling back the curtain on the “one-sound-fits-all” proffered not just by major headphone brands, but across all of personal audio, that poses as “innovation” and charges consumers a hefty premium.
With EVEN’s Don’t get beat by Beats campaign, the company urges consumers to re-consider the sound quality of their current headphones or earbuds of choice and to better understand what’s missing. Just like eyesight, each person’s hearing is unique, yet headphones, from Beats and Apple to Bose and others, are still built in a one-sound-fits-all model. Consumers are missing out on hearing music, television, podcasts and everything else in tune with their own ears. The campaign will feature a pop up experience in New York City, the introduction of EVEN’s H3 Headphones and additional engaging consumer elements.
