The 2020 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Peter Huang, for his clip for Jessie Reyez's Far Away. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one featuring a Vancouver rock combo.


Babe Corner - Cigarette

The video for Vancouver- based four-piece rock band, Babe Corner’s “Cigarette”, directed by Lester Lyons-Hookham. begins with the likes of the opening credits of a 70s style western meets out of this world alien movie. With a large title filling the screen of a black and white desert background before jumping into the video, it feels like something straight off the big screen.

The track which is described as “a classic breakup tune balancing post-relationship frustration with triumphant noisy guitars, illustrating closure over the matter," is met with visuals of the band playing different instruments in various locations of the desert. We are soon introduced to a big-foot crossed with Chewbacca looking character, representing what seems to be an ex that Babe Corner ultimately get their revenge on.
