Frontman Brandon Flowers cited this alien-abduction anthem to The Sun November 7, 2008 as a typical Killers song: He explained: "Yes, it's very us. It came off the back of 'Don't Shoot Me Santa', our Christmas single, so I was in a playful mood. I think it's really adventurous for me."
Brandon Flowers recalled the story of the song to NME: "We're always making demos, and on our way to South America, we had a few days off so we went to the rainforest in Panama," he said. "On the plane on the way there, I was humming the verse, and I couldn't wait to lay it down and we made a demo with Ted (Sablay), our touring musician, in the hotel room in Panama. That demo probably isn't that different from the final version."
The was featured in Season 1 of the sci-fi series Fringe in the episode "The No-Brainer."
