Ben Harper and Relentless7 - Shimmer & Shine

I was vegging yesterday night after work and noticed that in the Ben Harper and Relentless7 - Shimmer & Shine video there is a close up shot of a unicyclist. I thought it was cool!


Looks like that shot may have come from Santa Cruz; there is a bike path separated with those low rubber barriers from the main road.

But I don’t know anyone in the Santa Cruz crowd who rides a relic of a unicycle, with turned-up jeans (how hipster). Might have been a staged shot.

“This video is not available in your country” - Youtube :angry:


I saw the video on VH1. The unicycle shot just apears in the video for a second. Enough time to get my attention but not long enough to really notice the details. Is Ben harper in to unicycling? The shot was pretty out of context.


The video documents a band trip from LA up to San Francisco and back; there are a number of shots which are either from the Santa Monica or Santa Cruz beach boardwalks, and the unicycle shot comes from there. It’s probably there just for atmosphere.
