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 that were eligible for the Prize, including this one from an internationally acclaimed indie rock combo.


Born Ruffians - I Fall in Love Every Night

Indie rockers Born Ruffians hail from Midland, Ontario, but have been making waves in the music industry all over the world. Formed in 2004, the band, consisting of Luke Lalonde (guitar/vocals), Mitch DeRosier (bass), and Steve Hamelin (drums), released their first album in 2006 after signing to UK’s Warp Records.

Their song and video for I Fall in Love Every Night comes from the 2020 release of the album JUICE. Frontman Lalonde describes the song as exploring  how "you can forget how beautiful the world is and you can forget to even notice the person right next to you..."

The video takes this idea to a different level. Opening up on a talk show host covered in a Pink goo-like substance, he introduces the band who begins to play the song with a lack of expression on their faces. We are then introduced to another slime-covered creature playing trumpet in the background, seemingly going unnoticed. He eventually takes center stage for his solo, which is when the band realizes he is there. The green man begins to hijack the performance, playing into the idea that you may not realize someone is standing right beside you the whole time until they’re interfering in your life.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
