This is something daz did while we were in Thailand.
Not make a video clip with Powderfinger unfortunately.
But he bought one of these lanterns and lit it and set it free.
Every night we'd sit at this outdoor bar and see these lights floating away into the sky. They'd go miles up and away. Lots of them. They'd end up just looking like stars. And we'd wonder what they were.
So one night when we were all asleep, Daz went for a walk down to the beach and found that there you could buy one of these huge lanterns, light it, then release it. You make a wish as you release it and they are believed to bring you good luck. Its like you're sending your bad luck away with them. So that was something special he got to do on his own. I didn't ask what he wished for. Probably that I wouldn't make him go for any more hour long speedboat rides anytime soon.
They're made of some sort of rice paper and are apparently pretty heavy. Bigger than I was expecting. I believe Bernards wife was ill with a heart condition and thats why he was doing the wish/good luck thing.
If you don't want to listen to him going on about it just skip in about 2 minutes 30 seconds and you'll see them being released – pretty spectacular. There weren't this many where we were because this was filmed at a festival. But we definitely had the crazy fireworks going off every night. People just let them go in the street all the time.
And if you don't know who Powderfinger are, they're an aussie group, been around for years now.
