To cast the many faces in this video, director Greg Page put up an advertisement in an Asian food hall. The clip combines band PanAm rock and rolling in a warehouse, with shots of various Asian women larking around in a photo booth, and leaving (subtitled) messages for the band. Director and musician Greg Page has gone on to direct dozens more music videos (including clips for The Datsuns and Elemeno P), animated shorts, and 2003 horror movie The Locals.
Look closely - you may notice we used a miniature warehouse for the background, made out of balsa and cardboard. During parts of the song I actually shook the model warehouse to give it more impact. Casting wise, we put up a notice at an Asian food hall, and ended up with around 30 girls keen to be in the video.– Director Greg Page, March 2009
