David Fincher/Michael Bay []

FOR THE RECORD: THE MEATLOAF VIDEO WAS FINCHER’S CONCEPT THAT BAY WAS BROUGHT INTO DIRECT… «Fincher was very expensive. He and the label were at an impasse over the Meat Loaf video, so I said, «Why don’t we just give this to Michael Bay?» Fincher gave it to Bay, we ended up spending $750,000, and it was a seminal video. Michael directed it, and it was David’s concept. That was the first? and last time Fincher and Bay collaborated.» – Joni Sighvatsson from the book I Want My MTV.
