Mike Powell Stars In Ben Harper Music Video

The music video by Ben Harper And Relentless7 is for the song “Skin Thin.” The video is on-location mostly in and around Syracuse, NY. Split-screens amp up the presumably fated get-together of the two leads — a rugged guy, played by Mike Powell, with multiple jobs and a sense of family vs. a sexy stripper who knows she could do better — but the director keeps you hanging until the very last moment of the video, eking out every bit of drama.

As you watch the video, you can tell it was shot in the home of a family member of Powell’s because there are framed pictures of Mike growing up. Maybe that’s why Mike looks so comfortable or maybe it’s because he is just so damn talented. Can’t wait to see Mike in his own music video someday.

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.

    Give some props to the director, Danny Stessen. He’s a former Syracuse laxer who is super talented with a great body of work. And yes kudos to Mikey P for his authenticity.
