Starring Andy Daly as the video’s mock director, the music video for Real Estate’s latest single is a witty and hilarious jibe at the entertainment industry. Off their wonderful third studio album, Atlas, the video sees Daly sell out in the opening scene, letting three different writers pen the script for the video instead, no matter how bizarre their intentions. Written and directed by the real Tom Scharpling, the video really pays off from setting up the narrative in the beginning, almost acting like a comedy sketch before the track finally kicks in.
