Directed by Ray Tintori, and animated by Starburns Industries (Rick & Morty), the song's music video follows a dog and a cat who meet at a wedding reception and fall in love. Tintori has previously worked with the likes of MGMT and Chairlift.
Win Butler said Arcade Fire had wanted to work with the director since the early 2010s. "There was talk of collaborating during 'The Suburbs
' shoot – we were going to film it in New Orleans but then it got moved to Austin at the last minute, and Ray was caught up working on Beasts Of The Southern Wild
," he said.
"So it was very full circle to finally be working with him in New Orleans during Mardi Gras," Butler added. "There is a playful, carnivalesque energy to the song; to capture that by filming literally during carnival felt right."
