End of the World
Filmed in Yokohama, Tokyo, Japan in August 2007 by Irish directors D.A.D.D.Y. The band shot the video while they were out in Japan playing the Fuji Rock Festival. The video is a tongue in cheek look at the last day on Earth as seen through Death’s eyes before he gathers the other three horsemen of the apocalypse to bring everything to an end. Look out for the “Lost In Translation” references.
Tim said of the video:
“We made the video in Yokohama, just outside Tokyo. It’s following Death, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, during the days before the End of the World as he goes about his menial tasks. At the end he links up with us and it turns out we’re the other three horsemen. We all ride off into some sort of portal to bring about the End of the World.
Actually, they say never work with children and animals, but that’s been our last two videos. They had these two horses on set and the main one was this white albino, but he must’ve been very sensitive cos he wouldn’t go anywhere unless his mate came with him. Then he spent the whole time biting the other horse’s arse!”
