Reigning Academy of Country Music (ACM) Vocal Group of the Year, The Band Perry, has released its latest music video for the riotous Republic Nashville single, “Chainsaw,” exclusively featuring Stihl equipment. The music video portrays the CMT Music Awards nominees as a ‘tree service for the broken-hearted,’ helping to remove the evidence of a romance gone wrong: initials carved into trees.
Directed by David McClister, the superstar siblings’ video was filmed at a privately owned and managed property in Oregon, where the trees featured had already been slated for use in lumber projects, such as telephone poles and other sustainable purposes.
Behind the scenes, Stihl brought in tree care expert Mark Chisholm, three-time world champion tree climber and arborist, who pre-staged the trees with cameras to capture the action from multiple angles. He also helped with the removal of the trees from the property. Stihl supplied all of the chain saws and protective equipment featured in the video, as well as provided onsite product training for the band.
“We were honored by the opportunity to assist The Band Perry with the resources they needed to operate products safely, while still achieving their creative vision,” said Roger Phelps, promotional communications manager for Stihl Inc. “We had a great day on the set, meeting and working with Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry. They are a great family and terrific musicians.”
