Shout-out to the guy who, among all this hedonism and bacchanalia, is playing a board game. You do you, buddy.
When it cuts away it really looks like that lampshade is going to fly to the fucking moon.
There’s a lot of joyless, spent people, all partied out. In a behind-the-scenes clip, keyboardist/turntablist Frank Delgado said: “The concept behind the video is a never-ending party, going on for three days or so – a wild, exotic, indulgent party. The band doesn’t seem to be the primary focus.”
One of the models featured in the video agreed, saying, “The whole premise is like we’ve been up on drugs for three days.”
Director Liz Friedlander has made dozens and dozens of videos, including blink-182’s Adam’s Song, Harvey Danger’s Flagpole Sitta (better known as the theme from Peep Show), +44’s When Your Heart Stops Beating and Avril Lavigne’s Don’t Tell Me.
Even taking into account that most of these people are models – so are tiny – that is an enormous fucking pumpkin.
