Shooting a music video can often by a taxing process.
For bands, it generally involves a lot of standing around - in between miming to their latest single, of course. So when Real Estate began focussing on their next clip, the band can be forgiven for feeling reticent.
Thankfully, they allowed director Tom Scharpling to do whatever he pleased... Recruiting American comedy actor Andy Daly, the resulting video features the 'Eastbound And Down' star as a bankrupt film maker selling slots to the highest bidder.
So expect to see "undead extreme sports enthusiasts", some extremely odd product placements and the Westboro Baptist Church. Those guys get everywhere, huh?
Watch it now. (via Funny Or Die)
