In the video for his latest single, "Make Believe," Tom Goss takes "revealing" to a whole new level.
According to a press release sent to The Huffington Post, the clip, which finds the gay DC-based singer-songwriter totally nude, features the painting skills of Scott G. Brooks, who transformed Goss's body into a "tropical landscape" while a "shipwrecked character and his local guide invent a series of playful games while escaping the dangers lurking around this most unusual Isle of Man."
The video was shot in one 80-minute take and utilized ten off-camera puppeteers. The press release claims each second of the video took 28 seconds to film and the clock "over Goss's naughty bits tracks the real time" it took to complete the clip.
Check out the video, directed by Aram Vartian and Michael Key, above and then visit Goss's official website for more info.
