War With Me
The video was shot sporadically over three weeks, in Chinatown on 6th February 2010 and The Hamptons. Tim was originally meant to be in the back of a 60s Mercedes in one of the scenes, however it broke down en route to the shoot, instead they used a Jaguar.
Tim on the filming of the video:
The video for “War With Me” was quite an adventure, shot randomly over three weeks. We shot the beach stuff out in The Hamptons, near where they shot the “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” beach scenes. We drove out in a beautiful 60s Mercedes convertible sports car but it broke down a mile from the beach.
Weirdly enough we’d just passed a vintage Merc repair shop. Alex the director went back there to see if they could fix up the car. He came back with the owner Jimmy who had a cat and dog in his car with him. He drove us to the beach so we could shoot while he checked out the car. It turned out that the car needed a lot of work and wasn’t going anywhere. We had planned to shoot a part of the journey in this car, luckily Jimmy saved the day again and let us film that part in his Jag and it turned out to be way more interesting.
