The video itself is an interconnected series of visual concepts based (admittedly somewhat inexplicably) on "fever" dreams, social anxieties, men's undergarments, VHS tape decay, paparazzi fatigue and black hole event horizons, as well as Pastafarianism and the Flying Spaghetti Monster (His Noodly Appendages be upon us). No permanent psychological damage has been reported by any of the cast or crew.
We filmed the band in Cable Car Light Tunnel in Wellington and in our studios in Auckland within a custom-built, sequenceable light tunnel (dubbed the 'Tron Orca') to create the swirling light effects you see in the clip. The 'proto-willy' and stretchy body effects were achieved using miniature photography and bluescreen compositing.
