Video: Bright Eyes – “Shell Games”
Not unlike their future tourmates Titus Andronicus’ latest official video, Bright Eyes filmed their “Shell Games” clip in a snow-covered setting, though this scene is decidedly more cozy as Conor Oberst and friends (other band members, an owl, a horse, etc.) keep their The People’s Key party inside before rocking out around a bonfire. And then the morning after: a monkey and kangaroo (?) explore discarded equipment. Okay, this official video officially has nothing to do with “heavy love” or Sisyphus, but cheers to director Nik Fackler for making me wish I was there.
