Songfacts®:

  • The song's music video was directed by Eric Wareheim from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! The surreal clip features Ray Wise, best known as Leland Palmer on Twin Peaks, who we see lip-syncing Victoria Legrand's verse before an adoring crowd during a weird American football game. Wareheim commented in NME: "It was the idea of Victoria [Legrand] to use Ray. The contrast of that rugged face with the ethereal vocals was a home run."
