Blitzen Trapper: Stranger in a Strange Land

[wide]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=hEn2L0pPIGs#![/wide] Blitzen Trapper’s official video for their track “Stranger in a Strange Land” was created by Luke Norby and Brian Adrian Koch. It features landscapes found in Nome Alaska where there are no indigenous trees or mountains within plain sight.

Film maker Luke Norby, along with the help of Blitzen Trapper drummer Brian Adrian Koch, compiled a series of Norby’s incidental shots including shivery hand held pans in 20 below zero conditions and segments from a sweeping driving shot that Norby shot from the back of a truck in 2010.

Nome is known for housing the finish line to the Iditarod or “The Last Great Race”, an 1100 mile race across the length of Alaska. The video also includes intermittent overlays of Singer//Songwriter Eric Earley along with a glimpse of the final mile from the 2010 Iditarod final finisher A.K.A “The Red Lantern” and cameo by captain Jack and John Boyles walking out into the frozen Bearing Sea.
