Abhay Deol-PIA embark on a fantastical escapade in 'Follow the Toad'

In a groundbreaking collaboration, actor Abhay Deol joins forces with emerging international EDM artist PIA in the visually stunning music video ‘Follow the Toad,’ directed by international filmmaker Joe Sill. Known for his penchant for offbeat projects, Abhay Deol delivers yet another trailblazing performance in this immersive narrative that transcends traditional music videos. Shot in just a single day using cutting-edge virtual production techniques, the video is a visual extravaganza that transports viewers to a vast and ancient otherworldly land, the narrative showcasing the battle between good and evil. Drawing inspiration from iconic adventures such as Indiana Jones, the fantastical landscapes reminiscent of The Lord of the Rings, and the intricate world of Dune, Joe Sill's direction brings a unique cinematic flair to the music video.
Speaking about the experience of shooting for a virtual production, Abhay Deol shares, “In the realm of acting, the tools at hand play an important role in enabling us (performers) to bring characters to life. However, one challenge that often disrupts the process is the reliance on green screens and the need to imagine the environments or obstacles being portrayed, rather than directly interacting with them. In the case of ‘Follow the Toad,’ a virtual production leveraging Unreal Engine technology, this barrier was easily overcome. By immersing myself in a digitally-created world, I found it easier to connect with, and to respond to my surroundings, despite their purely virtual nature. And thus, this breathtakingly expansive video came to life!”
For EDM artist PIA, who looks no less than an ethereal princess herself in the video, ‘Follow the Toad’ marks not just a musical endeavour, but a journey about exploring new storytelling avenues and pushing artistic boundaries, all while working alongside her friend Abhay! PIA expresses, “As my first solo project, both in terms of film & music, it was a surreal experience. The song inspired the story, which inspired the visuals. And, Abhay is a true master of his craft. And true to my love for bridging worlds, working together was a harmonious ‘East meets West’ fusion that was organically manifested through all of our mutual love of wanting to tell exciting stories in new ways.”

Joe Sill's impressive career trajectory, which includes directing projects for top brands like Apple, NASA, Disney, Nike, and Warner Bros. Games, underscores the calibre of talent behind the music video. Utilizing a stage equipped with a remarkable 30-foot-by-12-foot LED wall, Joe, co-founder of Impossible Objects, not only helmed the project but also meticulously crafted the breathtaking environments featured throughout the video. Joe imparts, “For ‘Follow the Toad,’ I wanted to ensure that we captured the transcendental energy PIA and Anymize (the music producer) delivered in their music. When I first listened to the track, I felt as though I was witnessing something behemoth and giant. It felt mesmerising and otherworldly – as though I was watching something undeniable being reborn or awakened, and I couldn’t turn away. By building the virtual environments in Unreal Engine, I am glad that instead of traveling to exotic real-life places like Iceland or Jordan, we never left the soundstage, yet the end result was nothing short of cinematic splendour!”

Happy April Fools' Day: Celebrities join in on the fun, reminiscing about their favourite prank-filled memories

Varsha Hegde
As a teenager, I used to be very mischievous. Once, my friends tried to fool me on April Fools' Day. Since we used to have a lot of fights, my classmates filled vinegar in my water bottle. As soon as I took the first sip, I spat it out, and everyone laughed. It was a very funny incident.
Simple Kaul
Right from my childhood, I used to celebrate this day. I have fooled so many people on this day. However, as you grow older, you become more serious. Now, I don’t fool people on April 1st, but I have been fooled a lot of times by my friends on April 1st. I remember once when I was in Kashmir, and as children, my cousins and I were very naughty. My mom had given my nana ji some pieces of paneer to eat, and when he ate them, he threw everything away because I had replaced it with thermocol pieces. He was so angry, and my cousin and I ran away, shouting "April fool, April fool," and had fun.

During our school days, we used to carry fake lasers and fake cockroaches. We would throw them at someone or put fake snakes or lizards on someone, and the students would scream. Usually, we used to prank girls, and they would get scared. It was fun during school times. However, now we are so busy that we don’t have time, and this day used to be fun in our tender ages.
Saanand Verma
My mom always makes April fools of me, saying that there are police in the society, or there is no TV connection, or she used to say that my sister from Delhi has come to visit me, but actually, she didn’t. In my life, I have never fooled anyone, neither on April Fools' Day. Let’s see what idea my mom comes up with this time.
Gurpreet Singh
Let me tell you about my friend with the birthday on April 1st. So, we're all hyped up for this big bash. Gifts wrapped, party hats on standby, the whole shebang. But when we rocked up to his place, it was like a ghost town. No balloons, no confetti, just our puzzled faces staring back at each other. We were scratching our heads, like, "Dude, where's the party at?" And get this – he hits us with, "Oh, the celebration's on the 31st of April, at this swanky 5-star Hotel!" Now, at first, we're all like, "Yeah, sure," but then it hits us that April 31st doesn't exist! And suddenly, it all clicks. The joke's on us! But you know what? Despite the no-show party, it was one heck of a memorable day. Lesson learned: when it comes to April 1st birthdays, expect the unexpected!
Nitin Goswami
When I was small, I hid my best friend's dog, and I told him that his dog had run away. He got very stressed and searched everywhere for his dog. When he came back home, he was very sad, and then I told him that I had hidden his dog in his cupboard with his treats so he could be busy eating.
