Something Could Happen

by Syd Briscoe

Tom Petty: “Something Could Happen” - 6 mins 14s

Alice in Wonderland meets Tinder in this entertaining promo for Tom Petty's 'Something Could Happen'. The magic is woven with forensic attention to detail by director Warren Fu, as a woman (played by Lauren Cohan) tries to forget a broken heart via decluttering and dating adventures. It's a humorously inventive twist on modern fairy tale, with memories of the past coalescing to create something new.

The film's quirky sense of humour is embodied by the protagonist's cobbled-together suitor, which constructs itself a body from scrap and promptly blows the rest of an inadequate dating pool out of the water. Disaster strikes immediately, as it is wont to do, but a hopeful ending shows it's hard to keep a well-healed heart down.
