Ted Ed Fred shot this music video at an electrical store in Aberdeen. The band mimed to demos recorded with Jack Endino the previous day at Reciprocal Recording in Seattle. Despite there being silencing pads on Dale Crover's drum heads, his drums and cymbals are still very audible over the backing track!
