Baltimore, Maryland. “I wake up every morning thinking of my blue. No matter where I’m going, I’m headed straight to you.” So begins the tribute to Our Blue – our watery mother ocean. Created by a team of Red Sea divers known as Tank Bangers, the melodic compilation is the latest in a series of underwater musical videos from a team that has generated a substantial online following on YouTube and Facebook. Unlike their prior videos, Our Blue is more than a fun video to watch, it’s a promo for an entire record by the group, the proceeds of which go towards ocean conservation efforts.
If you have any connection to the sea at all, I think you’ll find something of yourself in this short piece. I sure did. I’m hoping to see it as a finalist in this coming summer’s 2012 Blue Ocean Film Festival. Until then, enjoy the video:
