Despite their music video was banned by state broadcaster TVNZ,The Downlow concept wins the prestigious Golden Jandals at the  2008 Radio Active 89FM Handle the Jandal  DIY music video  competition the other day.

According to Hadden Morrison, Event  director, this year’s  event continued  the legacy  of creative  craziness  and number -8  weirdness set from  previous  Handle  the Jandal event.

As I said the over all winner went to Auckland’s The Downlow Concept,directors of the controversial video for   The Hot Grits  song  Headlights.

In the Music Video featured  children drinking milk as if it was  hard liquor  and was reportedly banned  by TVNZ for exploiting children. Unsurprisingly, that video  also won  the category award  for Best Exploitative Tactics.
