Looks like Ozzy and Sharon Osborne have a third child we’ve rarely heard of. Meet Aimee Osborn, 31, and her band ARO (pronounced Arrow) and their new YouTube video for the song “Raining Gold.”
Directed by Spencer Susser and sounding like a page out of Lana Del Rey’s songbook, the video features some grisly shots of bullet ridden and dismembered corpses after one hell of a shootout. Our heroine is casually sitting in the aftermath of the carnage at a diner while a near death man craws on the floor soaked in blood. No big deal.
Not far from what we’d expect from Ozzy’s daughter but not really that groundbreaking either. Probably the coolest part of the clip is the 1974, big bumpered Nova that Osborne casually drives away in towards the end of the video.
It’s interesting to see how these malaise era cars still seem to be the darlings of young, hip directors, (even though they were probably not born when these rigs were new.)
Additionally, we wonder why the cars of today are never portrayed in these videos. It’s either a testament to how timeless these old cars are or a biting reminder that current pop culture doesn’t have anything on 40 year old Detroit cool.
For film buffs, check out the long, unbroken shot in the opening scene that begins outside and ends with Aimie in the diner. Pretty cool.
Whether this video will propel Aimee Osborne and ARO into stardom remains to be seen, but at least we know someone in her inner circle likes cool old Novas.
