Believe Media director Paola Kudacki captures the interpretation of a dream Dave Grohl has had since he was 14

Paola Kudacki Brings Dave Grohl's Darkest Dream to Life in Foo Fighters' 'Shame Shame'

The Foo Fighters have released a new music video for 'Shame Shame' and alongside an announcement of a virtual concert in anticipation of their next album, Medicine at Midnight.

Shot in LA, the black-and-white film for 'Shame Shame' was brought to life by Believe Media director Paola Kudacki and co-stars Dave Grohl. 

The latest visual offering from the band sees them heading in their darkest direction to date, with Dave embarking on a mysterious quest to discover a burning coffin at the top of a hill.

The video is based on an interpretation of a recurring dream that’s haunted Dave since he was 14.

In an interview with NME, Dave says: “When we started considering the video, that dream I’ve lived with for 37 fucking years seemed to match with the aesthetic of the song. I called a friend of mine, Paola Kudacki, who’s a world-renowned photographer and then called Sofia Boutella (The Mummy, Kingsman), who’s just a force of nature." …Sofia Boutella  assumes the role of weight on Grohl’s shoulders in the form of said shame.
