New Video: Chris Orrick – Design Flaw (Prod. By L’Orange)

Detroit native and Mellow Music Group recording artist Chris Orrick (formerly known as Red Pill) drops off the brilliantly dark visual for his latest single “Design Flaw” produced by L’Orange.

Directed by Malcolm Critcher, the video features Chris in puppet form as he spirals out of control in a dimly-lit hotel room with drugs, alcohol, despair and a pretty acquaintance, played by Amari Dejoie.

Statement from the director:

“One thing that has always struck me about Chris Orrick’s lyrics is how deftly they walk the razor’s edge of the comedic and tragic. For our first collaboration, I wanted to bring this spirit to life. The idea of having a puppet circling the drain to rock bottom was ultimately born from ruminating on addicts and what role denial plays in their struggle. The puppet is approaching rock bottom as an alcoholic, but foundation-ally his substance abuse stems from his denial of the fact that he is an inanimate object. I thought this idea was hilarious.”

You can find “Design Flaw” on Chris Orrick’s upcoming album, Portraits, due out May 4th.
