So this is pretty cool. Death Cab for Cutie plans the ambitious endeavor of shooting a music video for their single “You Are a Tourist” in one take, while being simulcast to the Web.
To make this project even more complex, the band plans a diverse/complex set of moves and visual effects for the shoot.
“It’s kind of hard to describe because it’s kind of like … I liken it to a 5-year-old trying to explain their trip to Disneyland,” frontman Ben Gibbard said to MTV. “It’s sensory overload, so there’s a lot of things happening, and trying to kind of walk anybody through it would be very difficult. But there are lights and dancers, and smoke and projections, and it’s gonna be kind of a little bit of a Busby Berkeley-type of spectacle.”
You can watch this experiment live right here on andPOP on Tuesday (April 5) at 7 p.m. ET.
