Prism Prize Eligible Video: Mister Nobu - Best of Me

The 2020 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Peter Huang, for his clip for Jessie Reyez's Far Away. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos that were eligible for the Prize, including this one from the Toronto-based co-founder of the famed Choir! Choir! Choir!

Mister Nobu - Best of Me

Mister Nobu is the solo project of Nobu Adilman, the co-founder and director of Toronto’s Choir! Choir! Choir! Nobu has recently begun creating his own music with the release of his first album, TAVIE. The album features 12 tracks, which chart the highs and lows of an emotional relationship.

The visuals for his video for Best of Me, a song about his father who died over 10 years ago, shows the emotion he’s conveying in lyrics that are brought to vivid life in the clip. It opens with a turtle swimming in the ocean, and one can only assume that it’s a symbol to his father. The video is full of stunning visuals, mixed in with crossfades of Nobu on the beach, contemplating.
