BEHIND THE SCENES
NOTES FROM KEVIN HAUS

The concept for the video picks up where the video for Nothing's "Eaten by worms" left off. Nicky from Nothing and I started discussing funeral processions. I wanted to do something pretty elaborate influenced by the funeral scene from Soy Cuba or possibly by the car accident scene from Le Week-End. The Philly New Year's Mummers parade was coming up very soon and I remembered them from when I was a kid, marching in very elaborate costumes in the Syracuse, NY, St. Patrick's Day parade. As soon as I mentioned the mummers, Nicky's face lit up. That was on.

The day of the parade was brutally cold, which made shooting for any length of time difficult. We were lugging around a full size coffin that weighed near 75lbs. The parade itself was chaos. We were actually in the parade - the coffin led a group of mummers called the Molly Woppers. Everyone had been drinking and whatever else since the night before and it was incredibly crowded... plus the band had been carrying around that coffin all day and must have been getting tired, so continuing for long stretches while working around the crowd and available light became incredibly challenging. The DP, Chris Willmore did a great job as always.

The vocal parts and the fire were shot on separate days. The fire itself was memorable enough for what it was and Nicky trying to get it lit became the trailer for the album.

There's a saying in film production that warns not to work with kids or dogs due to unpredictability. I would definitely add large amounts of glitter to that.
