Doobie Brothers Call for Fan Submissions for New Video


The Doobie Brothers and HOR Entertainment, with help from Cisco Telepresence, will offer fans an opportunity to win a family reunion as the Grand Prize of the band's "Far From Home" contest, running now at Fans are asked to submit videos that illustrate emotional moments of passage in their families' lives, like a child heading off to college or a soldier returning from a tour of duty. Winning clips will be used in the final edit of the band's video for latest single "Far From Home," off their album World Gone Crazy, and the best video as selected by the band will win a family reunion at an upcoming Doobie Brothers concert.

The video for "Far From Home" was conceived and directed by Ringleader Production's Max Gutierrez , who filmed the Doobie Brothers at the historic Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The footage will be intercut with fans' home videos.

"We wanted to drive home the 'connection' in today's connected culture" says Gutierrez. "In collaboration with Cisco's Telepresence, we wanted to demonstrate how people can be connected around the globe in a way that transcends the traditional concept of 'Home'. The song sums it up quite eloquently: Just remember that you'll never be that far from home."
