"Charlie" by Red Hot Chili Peppers from 'Stadium Arcadium,' available now. Directed by Omri Cohen. Contest winner video.


"Charlie" is a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It is the third track on the first disc of their double album Stadium Arcadium. Kiedis has stated in interviews that the song is about a person's imaginative spark or inspiration. Although the song was never released as a single, the band held a world-wide contest for fans to direct a video for the song. 

On March 6, 2007 the Chili Peppers announced a contest for someone to direct a video for the song through their YouTube channel. On June 2, it was announced on the website that the winner was chosen out of 2,600 submissions and was informed, but the official announcement to who won was announced on June 18. The winning director was Omri Cohen who not only had his video selected by the band but won $5,000 and got to meet the Chili Peppers in Paris, France. 

The video is dedicated to former Chili Peppers guitarist, Hillel Slovak. Anthony Kiedis stated that after watching dozens and dozens of videos this one had the most impact and even made both him and his girlfriend cry.
