My Co-Star

April 14, 2011

We’re shooting the video for “Iridescent” today. I walked onto set, and found out this guy above (named Trevor) is going to be our co-star.

Joe Hahn is always full of surprises.

    I’ve just seen the video and have to say – all you guys are great that you look so calm with Trevor on the table or in your hand, Mike😀
    BTW, the video is awesome, maybe I’ll go to watch Transformes too🙂

  2. thegluelpfan on April 22, 2011 at 2:40 am

    It’s good to know you don’t mind snakes😀 I actually kind of love them…and I swear this video is going to be totally weird and amazing!

  3. millalp94 on April 21, 2011 at 10:47 am

    awesome !:D

    can’t wait to see you both in the video😀❤

    My boss hates snakes, scared of snakes and cries if she see a snake. let’s hope she will still give me free days so I can go watch Linkin Park. Still… I got a feeling this video gonna be a great video!!

    Joe has great ideas! I bet you’ll do a tribute to Britney Spears’ MTV Awards performance of I’m a slave for you! I just hope little Trevor had a big fat mouse for lunch, and didn’t devour the McMike Burger with extra bacon. If he did, I wonder who’s running the blog now. Also, I’m surprised PETA didn’t sue you yet. Don’t they always, when pets/animals are used in the show biz?

  8. alelp on April 17, 2011 at 5:54 am

    eager to see the video
    LOL… its co-star scary😀

  9. betty108 on April 16, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    Snakes, leather, robots, cosmic effects, and band footage.. Yep, sounds like a Linkin Park music video to me. I’m just wondering how they’ll all fit together.. Can’t wait to see what crazy things Joe Hahn made you do this time- especially with Trevor, that guy gives me the heebie-jeebies.

  10. agnieszkacholewiak on April 16, 2011 at 10:19 am

    he is so cute😀

  11. xcvb1234 on April 16, 2011 at 7:59 am

    Here’s the link for the full song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRUqz9DsRKM Please comment and rate it..thanks…:)

  12. treadstone35 on April 16, 2011 at 6:48 am

    OMG how sweet!😀 ^^
    Anyway, can’t wait to see the video🙂

  13. janemari3 on April 16, 2011 at 6:44 am

    AWESOME! Im excited to know what Trevor will be doing in the video.

    Anyway, did you know that men are more likely than women to be bitten by snakes? Its a fact.

  14. Shinoda's Army on April 16, 2011 at 4:37 am

    I want him.

  15. alexlp2k8 on April 16, 2011 at 12:31 am

    Can’t wait to see the vdeo. BTW, I think the remix might be cool to be released with the music video. It would be a surprise for the other LP fans wich haven’t heard the remix yet. And it’s also shorter and more suitable for radio / TV.

  16. kim7huang on April 15, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    Happy to know that you are shooting the video of Iridescent,I love it!!!
    woww,dont let Trevor be hungry.
    have nice day🙂

  17. icecold25 on April 15, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    Nice to meet you, Trevor!! Just so you know, you are the luckiest snake in the hole world, not to mention that you are cute.

    Mike we all like him, but try not to get him nervous or anything…

  18. Claudia B. on April 15, 2011 at 10:32 am

    I’m trying to figure what’s up with that snake at the set. It couldn’t be because of that cobra that “escaped” the Bronx zoo… or could it? (Free the snakes, LOL?)

    It seems to me like this video is going to be the opposite of the Burning In The Skies video… There’s going to be more of robots, leather (?), you (I hope), and of course, Trevor. But those are just my speculations. I just wonder will there be a sneak peak of the video before Easter.

  19. ebidelson on April 15, 2011 at 10:26 am

    oh ! another album Artwork for new music video !
    just like WFTE , Rock on Joe !

  20. leenee89 on April 15, 2011 at 10:09 am

    Can’t wait to see the video!
    Maybe you’re going to tell us how your co-star was like?

    Hugs and Love.

  21. mikeecem on April 15, 2011 at 9:23 am

  22. lapkoola on April 15, 2011 at 9:15 am

  23. cincybmxlpfreak on April 15, 2011 at 9:11 am

    THAT’S AWESOME!! Are you nervous? I’m sure Brad is excited. He gets to be Britney Spears for a day.😛😉

  24. sanyacutie27 on April 15, 2011 at 8:19 am

  25. Julian on April 15, 2011 at 8:08 am

    ha That’s great! I love snakes… I actually had two when I was a kid. The first one I had was eatten by it’s own dinner! lol The replacement snake I got, well, I was in the hospital when it “dissappeared, ” so I was never exactly sure what happened to it.

  39. tinalein76 on April 14, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    You’re right Trevor is a nice guy LOL🙂
    Joe had intended a great idea to Trevor🙂

  44. dovingbird on April 14, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    …that is awesome. Man, you guys get all the fun, don’t you?

    BTW, definitely got my origami butterfly t-shirt today, and I am absolutely in love with it. It looks fabulous on me. Best purchase I’ve made in like a year, especially for where the money went.

    Here’s to hoping you didn’t die from an impromptu snogging session with Trevor or something!

    -Dovingbird

  45. Ally on April 14, 2011 at 8:25 pm

  52. kathyxx on April 14, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    Awwwww hez sho coote!

  53. SmokingMonkey on April 14, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    Almost as pretty as our pet python Kera. Just dont try and hold his head Mike and he wont strike.

  54. laporteralp on April 14, 2011 at 4:40 pm

    boys boys beware of that. that is dangerous not to play with animals hahha this great and with that video and we hope with cravings!

  55. soufex on April 14, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    snakes, leather and robots.

    so, uh. when’s this video coming out again? like, yesterday, right?

  56. gnaa93 on April 14, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    AWESOME!!! =D
    Are you going to keep your co-star? It’s beautiful! =)

  57. Alexandra Nofi on April 14, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    Looks to me like a carpet python. Snakes are my favorite animals, so, believe it or not, I’m actually jealous of you. I don’t imagine you as someone who would be afraid of snakes, (probably Chester or Brad), not that I think there is anything to be logically afraid of, anyways.

    Have fun working with Trevor!

    Anyone thinking about snake bites… Bites from pythons and boas are not that painful. Messy, but not painful. I’ve lived with cats my whole life, and I find cat bites to be way worse (cat bites get infected easily, too).

  58. guuuro on April 14, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    And I was afraid for a tiny spider at work today! :O

  59. lpsoul on April 14, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    Hey Mike can you check out my Linkin Park Reanimation canvas painting. I’ve been posting on your twitter and website for a while already and you haven’t seen it yet😦. Please check it out. Tell me what you think about the painting🙂 http://lpsoulx.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d399i03

  60. zoelkg on April 14, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    haha nice co-star!!

  61. Rana LP addict on April 14, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Seriously ..he is full of weird surprises !! Hope it won’t bite😀 ahah

  62. liviahpereira on April 14, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    Hell yeah! Love Joe’s idea of entertainment. HAHAHA
    Good luck for you guys. Hope you have fun with your new friend.😀

  63. Prih on April 14, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    Cute snake, looking forward to the vid!

  64. natakusiek on April 14, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    i’m starting to be a little scared about this video…

  65. Michael Gonzalez on April 14, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    I am curious to see what the hell that has to do with the song and Transformers lol Anyways, can’t wait for the video!
