Last night, Death Cab For Cutie shot their scripted, one take video and simultaneously streamed it live. You Are A Tourist was directed by Tim Nackashi. The video opens with the lead singer entering the screen, within seconds it looks like a male and female streaker run in the back of the set. There are ladies dancing (think the June Taylor Dancers), lots of illumination and a series of lit rooms which all have a hidden little story. Lots of overhead shots accompany a hypnotic song with a mesmerizing drum beat. Death Cab will have you under their spell.
Mashable interviewed bassist Nick Hammer about the video before they shot it.
