For this stylishly shot video, the ghosts of Goodnight Nurse rise from their coffins to perform a song about obsession, and dancing with the Devil. Reflecting the band's own obsession with horror imagery, the setting is a moon-lit hillside, surrounded by gravestones. The video won Best Rock Video at the 2005 Juice TV Awards, and was a finalist for Video of the Year. After the group's passing, each player stayed involved in music; lead vocalist Joel Little would rise up again to co-write Lorde's Grammy award-winning hit Royals. Director Jonathan Gerrard remembers making the video here.
At the time we were obsessed with graveyards and bats and assorted dark imagery. My favourite part is right at the beginning - we're all in our coffins. They built a miniature dirt wall with miniature coffins and we were inserted in post-production. We got to take our coffins home at the end of the day too. Mine's up by the TV.– Vocalist Joel Little, Feb 2009
