Prism Prize Video: Harrison ft. Ralph - Your Girl

The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded last month to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile the nominated videos, including this one that pairs an up and coming Toronto producer and a popular vocalist. Slaight Music is Patron Sponsor for the Prism Prize.

Harrison ft. Ralph - Your Girl

For the video for “Your Girl,” it seems that we have the talking can from Wet Hot American Summer to thank for the inspiration.

The video begins in a living room, introducing us to a man sitting on his couch, as he somewhat longingly looks to the empty seat beside him. He cracks open his first can of “Ralph Light” beer and lights up his “Langley Filtered” cigarette - the start to his inevitable hallucinatory spiral, as other inanimate objects begin to interact with him throughout the video.

Harrison teams up with the directorial duo, Ft. Langley, to create the visual for his infectious single, featuring singer, Ralph. To counter the upbeat tone of the song, Harrison requested something with a little bit of edge. And what results is the team taking us on a vivid, pseudo-hallucinatory journey - a journey that is rife with Harrison-branded product placement, an apt ode to society’s habit of over-consumption and a literal personification of using vices as self-medicating.
