kolfanclub video shoot

When I won the contest to be an extra in the Kings of Leon video for 'Back Down South' I really did not think it would be like it turned out to be! When me and my wife arrived at the address we were given it was a long lane that went strait up, like we were driving to the top of a mountain! Then, at the top, the lane curved around and there were ponds, oak fencing and goats out eating in the beautiful green pastures! I thought we had reached heaven! Then after a long drive that went winding around what felt like a clearing on top of a mountain we arrived at a few buildings with about 50 people standing around! Then behind us there was a limo and the kol tour bus and our hearts skipped a beat!
    Then we parked and got out of the car and signed in. Then Caleb came walking toward us and we all had our eyes on him! He passed us and went on down the lane to where they were shooting the video! The crew of the production company told us we were all getting Kodak video/cameras and that we were going to get to keep them and they wanted us all to film and take pictures. They wanted to take a few of our sim cards at the end of the night and copy them so they could add them into the second video which would be the making of back down south video!

   Then the production crew started picking different people for different parts of the video. We all ended up down at the shoot and got to hang out with the band for the rest of the day. By the end of the night the boys in the band were all really loaded from drinking shots of Tequila and beer! We all were really frozen by the end of the night but it was all worth it because this was once in a lifetime event! #kolcontest
