I’m So Open from Open
Released 2001


The band (Margo, Michael, Peter, Alan) play in the room of an apartment. During the video we see a young girl playing alone in the apartment. She drops a perfume bottle and breaks it. She is jumping on a bed with a pillow and the feathers start flying out of the pillow. When this happens feathers appear where the band is playing.

This video is available on The Open Road DVD as an Easter Egg. Go to ‘Margo and Michael Timmins Live at The Temple’ and in the fourth box from the left click once to make a picture of Michael appear, and then again to run the video.

The band plays in a shack, while a storm rages outside. Halfway through the video, the shack is lifted off the ground, and at the end of the video when the band walks calmly

The story follows the song, with Timmins sister Cali waking up in bed. The sheets contain some of the words to the song. She hangs around the apartment all day, does some painting/sketching enjoying the quiet, and later slides on the ice as a Toronto streetcar passes by.
