Before producing the long-running CW series Supernatural
and directing action flicks like Charlie's Angels
, Joseph McGinty Nichol, aka McG, started out directing colorful music videos for a host of '90s hits, including Barenaked Ladies' "One Week
" and Smash Mouth's "All Star
The video for "Fly" shows the band performing along with guest Super Cat on a retro stage and in a small living room, where McGrath dances on the walls and ceiling. Austin the bulldog, the band's mascot, also appears. At the end of the clip, five women are eager to welcome the guys home: their real-life moms.
McGrath and McG have a connection beyond their first three letters: they were classmates at Corona Del Mar High in Newport Beach, California.
