From ‘The King is Dead’, the album released this year, the video was directed by Michael Schur, who is known for co-creating NBC’s The Office. The clip is a dark tribute to David Foster Wallace 1996 novel Infinite Jest, which is a dystopian vision of North America in the near future. “I had this funny idea that a good video for the song would be a re-creation of the Enfield Tennis Academy’s round of Eschaton – basically, a global thermonuclear crisis re-created on a tennis court – that’s played about a third of the way into the book,” Meloy told NPR. “I found a kindred spirit in Michael Schur, a man with an even greater enthusiasm for Wallace’s work than my own. With much adoration and respect to this seminal, genius book, this is what we’ve come up with.” (courtesy songfacts.com)
