The Wombats’ video for ‘Kill The Director’ off the album A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation – available now on Roadrunner Records. Download now on iTunes: http://smarturl.it/wombats-guide
I’ve met someone that makes me feel seasick Oh what a skill to have Oh what a skill to have So many skills that make her distinctive But they’re not mine to have No they’re not mine
Whenever she looks i read the nearest paper Though i don’t care about the soaps No i don’t care about the soaps Though i’m acting like i’m in an Eastenders episode
If this is a rom-com Kill the director If this is a rom-com Kill the director please
Carrots help us see much better in the dark Don’t talk to girls; they’ll break your heart And this is my head and this is my spout *But* they work together; they can’t figure anything out
So with the angst of a teenage band Here’s another song about a gender i’ll never understand Here’s another song about a gender i’ll never understand
If this is a rom-com Kill the director If this is a rom-com Kill the director If this is a rom-com Kill the director please
This is no Bridget Jones This is no Bridget Bridget This is no Bridget Jones This is no Bridget Bridget This is no Bridget Jones This is no Bridget Bridget This is no Bridget Jones This is no Bridget Bridget This is no Bridget Jones This is no Bridget Bridget This is no Bridget Jones This is no Bridget Bridget This is no Bridget Jones This is no Bridget, Bridget Jones
I love music. I love crowded venues, loud music, and sweat-soaked fans. I love the sound of a venue opening its doors to the public.
Hey there! I have a wealth of experience in the entertainment and private event industries, having worked in various roles over the past 20 years. I have a private security background and have received training in defensive strategy, Krav Maga, festival security planning, and emergency response. I've worked at some fantastic concert venues and festivals, such as Emo's East, Stubb's, ACL Festival, Bonnaroo, and SXSW. I've also been fortunate to work in the box office for the Circuit of the Americas and the Germania Music Amphitheater music venue.
In 2014, I developed a passion for all things media-related and began exploring content creation and concert photography opportunities. I have no formal training in these areas, but in 2017, I decided to take it to the next level by pursuing a degree in the arts, specifically in radio, television, and film. I am currently a multimedia journalist for the student life department at ACC. I have received a scholarship from the Austin Film Society.
I've been blessed to have been mentored as a talent buyer under the legendary Mark Lee of 462 Concerts (now known as Live Nation) in Dallas, Tx, for nearly a decade. I've also had the opportunity to work as a camera operator for the Full Moon Features Puppetmaster sequel: Doktor Death and filmed multiple music videos, including SSB's feature single with Bernz, "Insane," and the Dirty Wormz dub hop single with Tech N9ne and Krizz Kaliko "2INCH REEL KILLA".
I truly believe in capturing the essence of life and representing it in a creative effort. Overall I'm passionate about my work and excited to share my experience and skills with others.
fucking awsome music.
BEST SONG EVERR:))))
this song is such a win
how does this have only 6 comments this is such a tuneee!
Europe sure does poop out some good bands 😀
“iv met someone who makes me feel sea sick.” -ohhh i was already hooked
<3 <3 this song :)
holy schlong <3
@DrAbeGelly no… if an aussie band came out and sang ther style id jizz repeatedly… And you can tell from their accents. Im quite sure they are, prove me wrong anyone reading this
I’ve met someone that makes me feel seasick, oh what a skill to have oh what a skill to have so many skills that make her distinctive, but there not mine to have, no there not mine. <3
love it love it love it love it
i cant stop listening
Wow. Their music moves me, literally. C:
At 2:17, the blood coming out of the guy reading the book is blue.
Anybody who can rhyme dark with heart deserves a medal
@AnnaBananaMontana Really? Ah well, I thought I caught a minor editing error. Were they meant to be paintballs, or they did just not want to shoot the actors?
@SYZZA92 Everytime I read your comment I giggle.
This song reminds me of 500 Days of Summer ^.^
@theoneyoudidntlike me to
I have no words, except for… No, still no words.
At 1:44 that totally reminded me of Cyclops from x-men
for you europeans, what is a “Rom-Com”
@TehGrahmmerNahzi Romantic Comedy.
@S1leNtRIP ok thank you
It took me an embarrassingly long time to realise that he’s saying “Rom Com”
I didn’t get it for a really long time. But god I love this song!
click @0:01 to skip ad
Hm… he kinda reminds me of Chuck. From Chuck…. :s
@Coldplayer170 But then it wouldn’t be indie and alternative. When you like a band that hardly anyone has heard of, it makes you that much cooler.
This song makes me want to go watch a Rom-Com and then throw my couch out the window………..
2 people were directors
The birth of rock music.
@Zallomallo0 oh HAHAHA, way to make a comment about the number of dislikes on a video 🙂
What The Hell is a romcom?
the only thing that makes me sad/mad about them, is the fact that they are not somewhat popular, which makes their music a bit rough sounding, similar to the Jakes, before they became Young the Giant.
@SYZZA92 because American bands are more into money than actual good musics
When the Wombats become a superband we can all say that we knew about them before.
@2:44 cowboy bebop… bang XD
i like it
@SYZZA92 I love you.
The lead singer looks like a mixture between Brendan Fraser and Tom Higgenson (Plain White T’s) 😛
@EverLong1995 Romantic Comedy
the first line, “i’ve met someone that makes me feel seasick.” that basically sums up everything about love.
OH DANG!!!!! SO SEXYYYYYY xD
@pyroboy182 Yeah, you’re right! Nobody’s ever said that about any band before, come to think of it. Thanks for the perspective…
0:43-hilarious “windblown” hair that’s one of the reason i love them besides the obvious fact that they are crazy talented
2 people care about the soaps.
hands down my favorite song to blast and sing along to while driving.
theyir lyrics are always just right :)this song and Lets Dance to Joy Division are pretty much the greatest songs in the world 🙂
My sister spent about 2 hours with them ^^ She said they’re uber nice. 😀
@brightcitylightsxx MHM 😀
would never know he was depressed 🙁
This is like a cheesier version of Animal Collective’s “Purple Bottle”
LOVE this TUNE!
This vid only has 60,000 views. Thats non sense!
I don’t think its fare the Justin Beiber gets 100 million views on his videos but the most I’ve seen a Wombat video have is 300,000. We have to give more attention to actual talent like this.
Oto kolejna piosenka dotycząca płci I nigdy nie zrozumiesz
@MrAlwahyz maybe if i was an exceeding talented person it could sound AS good.. maybe. XD
I will never get over this song, and why would I? It’s fucking awesome
Like if your the 63,146 Viewer 😀 Mwuaahaha
friend: what’d you think of the movie?
me: it was alright but… THIS WAS NOO BRIDGET JONES, THIS WAS NO.. BRIDGET BRIDGET—
friend: …? what the h***?
@1:55 lol duct tape guitar strap
This is great! I sense I’ll be adding this band to my list of favorites soon 😀
The best music videos I have seen are from this band.
I am very fond of this band.
If only I was british
I JUST LOVE BANDS LIKE THESE
Who else looked up who Bridget Jones is?
are you serious?!
Yeahhhhhhhhh I’m not from Europe. I’m from the states.
i’m from the states too! lol it’s a fairly old movie, so i don’t blame you for looking it up haha it’s an uber chick flick too :p lol
I love the song very very much. It’s probably one of my favorite Wombats songs. But I still do not understand the music video. Matthew Murphy buys fruit, is unhappy about being angsty over someone, and then EVERYONE DIES. The only part I get is the end, when he “kills the director.” With an imaginary gun, which is also odd. Oh wel. I love them too much for it to matter 😀
4 people were directors and got killed
blatant ripoff of a riff – block party “helicopter”
I heard this so many years ago, I am glad to find it again <3
only 75,000 views, it should have at least 20,000,000
the wombats, two door cinema club, and bloc party. in 1 show please.
I’m going to attempt this lol
So my understanding is this: He’s having his usual day in a usual movie, but starts realizing things aren’t right. He’s supposed to be in a romantic comedy, but there are explosions and nothing makes sense. It’s like the director didn’t really know how to put a rom-com together (or even a decent movie), and so just threw in a bunch of random stuff to keep the audiences attention. At the end, he “shoots” the director as if to quit or fire the director.
I’ve been saying this ever since I discovered the Wombats 😀
cant wait to see them in santa ana :>
Only while driving?
1:08 favourite bit
my favorite song BY FAR
i love this so much it just makes me smile when i’m having an off day x
It’s not a ripoff, it’s a homage, like many of The Wombats songs.
But tbh, it doesn’t even sound that similar…
just bieber has talent though?
not at all, bloc party are shite
look on his acoustic versions of his songs then, that’s not autotuned is it. therefore he does have ‘talent’ jesus christ can people not even have an opinion now a days i have nothing against the wombats im just stating my opinion
1996 Has 1mill 🙂
Nobody believed me when I said rom-com was a word. Haha. But now that the Wombats used it, its a divine word.
romantic comedy? they must be stupid or something?
Carrots help us see much better in the dark
Don’t talk to girls; they’ll break your heart
Love how they tried to re-create the scene from Notting Hill when Hugh Grant walks through the market, and the seasons change 🙂 Rom-Com 😉
Shit. Haven’t heard this song in nearly two years. Miss it 🙂
Don’t talk to girls, they’ll just break your heart.
Yeah I’m really proud of them.
HELL TO THE YES
You just gave attention to Just Bieber. So if your wish is to come true the first step to take is stop mentioning Justin Bieber.
You’re on every video I click on talking about that certain somebody.
Also, carrots help us see much better in the dark.
Too true too.
…May I ask you what other videos I’ve commented on saying this?
these guys are the loves of my life.
Coachella has that and more including vampire weekend, the postal service, passion pit, and like 100 more amazing bands/artists.
And less attention to the untalented…
The last few seconds. Finger pistol YO!
Teton Avenue – Train Stop
Teton Avenue – Train Stop
Teton Avenue – Train Stop
Seriously check them out!:) similar genre and very cool self made music video
You’re an idiot. That is all
At what point did ‘kill the director’ translate to ‘kill everyone on-set’?
i might be the only person but i honestly think Guide to Love Loss and Desperation is far better than this modern glitch….
Nope, I completely agree!
136,141 views….. how so few? This song is amazing!
I heard the director was a dick anyway….
I’ve been to a gig where it was The Wombats and Two Door Cinema club! It was pretty damn awesome.
if you love wombats, give Fish Tank a try. They played Reading 2012
“If this is a rom-com kill the director”. I find this line to be brilliant.
I basically am the real life Bridget Jones
I love that first line!!!!!……..badass video
That ending was epic
ooo ooo wwoooo ooooo
Dedicated to #teamTenacity on BBC The Apprentice 2014 reminds me of their disasters at directing and romantic board games 🙂
Murph looks like nic cage in this vid
From now on, every time I ever experience a romantically awkward moment, I will be tempted to start screaming “THIS IS NO BRIDGET JONES”
Someone must’ve of switched the craft. It was meant for the guy that asked for it. So basically your friend has been your enemy this whole time.weird
Okay to shut everyone up bridget jones is a british rom com about a fat women who falls for hugh grant and another wanker lets call him larry and eastender is a soap opera based in the east end of london. Just saying you probally wont get most actors in there videos or many of there lyrics unless your brtish. Like Michelle from skins is in the one when she kills them all also us inbetweeners sucks ass stop copying our shit ive seen your version of skins as well please stop
Signed a stretchy rabbit and the british nation x
This is the gayest shit I’ve ever heard, and I’ve herd my real homosexual friend sing.
Is anyone else watching this because of the eastenders advert?

The Wombats are the definition of greatness. This is the first song I ever heard by them and ever since, I’ve been hooked!
starting to really enjoy this band now🎵👍

“Here’s a song about a gender I’ll never understand”. HERE COMES TUMBLR, OH GOD.
Living for preppy Murph 😍
Who else realised after they first heard this song just how many tv shows and films this song is in,
spunk on me]
I hate the people in the comments who got here from the inbetweeners! I love the inbetweeners but found this song before I watched it because I actually have A GOOD TASTE in music!! Shame on you if you ONLY found it because of the inbetweeners.
dang im only 12 and I know why my mom likes it… ok here is my aesthetic, older, stuff, help me lmfao
Can’t go a day without the wombats stuck in my mind
i dont know about you but Bridget Jones is actually a really good rom-com
Bridget Jones pisses the hell of of me
Is it just me but the wombats are the only British band that actually sound British when they sing 🤔
after all these years i always thought he was saying if this is a role call kill the director…..but no….romcom….short hand for romantic comedy….or is it!?!?! DUN DUN DUNN!
i wonder, did they kill the director of this video?
“Ooo hello will”
Proud to be from Liverpool, home of The Wombats (and Tord)
Is that Joseph Christiansen???
This is not what I expected the music video to look like! Also, never noticed this was in the Inbetweeners.
My life is this song
Kinda just realised ‘kill the director’ is a bit of a ripoff of ‘hang the dj’ in that smiths song :/
I’ve never seen the inbetweeners… I found this song on musical.ly lol
Find something that rhymes with “heart” “CARROTS HELP YOU SEE BETTER IN THE DARK”
“I’ve met someone that makes me feel seasick” favorite lyrics ever❣
Have my babies!!!
Who’s here from musically? 😬
2k18 and still jamming to this 😍
The kooks and the wombats were used loads in Angus thongs and perfect snogging
Getting ready for reading in Leeds 👌🏻
ONE OF THE BEST SONGS EVER❤
I found this because of musically
Wtf did i just watch😂even the lyrics is better
Who Listening 2018❤🥊
When he says “here’s another song about a gender I’ll never understand” it’s a great line but like women aren’t hard to understand you’re just dumb
The first verse is so popular on musically !!
I was three when this song came out. I love it still even though I’ve never heard of it until I was 10
Does ‘this is my head and this is my spout’ mean what I think it means?
I might make a broadway karkat of this
It sounds better being 12 in 2005 than being 12 in 2018..
0:00 – 0:27
I love this song
Who is here from musical.ly ?
HELLO I’M WILL AND I AM DOING A SHIT
Do you guys have a manager? And a way for me to contact him/her?
CLASSIC. BITCH IF YOU DONT REMEMBER BEING 10 AND PRETENDING YOUR THE BAND WTF WERE YOU DOING?!!!
These effects.. are awesome. (I know, the vid is old)
They sound normal to me coz im British
I bloody love them
How the fuck have I only just found out about this song?! It’s 2018 omg!!! I’m in love with it tho, downloaded straight away
This is so fuckin English
This speaks to me
the amount of people here from musically, ew. the wombats are actually incredible and if your only here for the first few seconds because you found it off musically then just, ew
That escalated fast
“I’ve met someone that makes me feel sea sick “❤️❤️
When the Britis fight back be like
Found this because of the inbetweeners
I ❤️❤️❤️❤️This SONG SOOO MUCH

I’ve met someone that makes me feel seasick 🐡🙈
Inbetweeners anyone? I’m gonna say no n I’m just on my own
What genre is this? I’m into it lmao
Inbetweeners and Gavin & Stacey
This was used in the Inbetweeners series and musically, I come from actually following the band
Aaaaaah, the singer has such an innocent voice and looks so adorable! I love British people!
IVE GOT A RECIEPTTTTTTT
I too have hair that blows dramatically whenever I talk into a microphone
“Another song about a gender I’ll never understand” that lyrics kinda ironic now
ive met thomone who maketh me feel thea thick
I can’t stop listening to this
Is anyone listening in 2018 just wondering
Call me crazy, but I prefer the live version
The beginning is my favorite part
why do i hear a lisp?
Just blast this song through your headphones and pretend that you’re a part of the band and you’re just jamming out to this song. Literally the best feeling.
Who is here from musical.ly xd?
2019 let go im only here cause of tik tok but i never regreted it
Thisss was stuck in my headdd!
Tik tok anyone??
I came here because of the musically lisp thing lol
“I met someone who makes me feel *thsee thisick* . “
The other guy with the guitar looks like he is trying to conceal a boner
ive met thomeone that makes me feel thea thick
Tik tok ruined this but I still listen to it
this is still super underrated
I love the lisp.
My life story right here……
WAIT! It’s been 10 years! I feel oldd.
