Brand New Portnoy Brothers Song: Memories
The man featured in the video is called Yitzhak and ended up on the set of our video completely by accident. We were filming just before sunrise at about 4am when he came over to warm up by the fire as he is homeless.
He heard the song and was quite clearly touched by it so decided to stay for the duration of the video shoot. Our camera crew managed to capture some of his amazingly raw emotions and Yitzhak became a part of this video; dare we say he made it! (we have spoken to him since and learnt more about him. He had served in the army for 30 years and was a general. He sadly, lost a lot of his hearing and all of his comrades in battle.) -Sruli Portnoy
