Directed by Nat Livingston Johnson and Gregory Mitnick, aka “Peking”, Here We Go Magic‘s latest single, “Casual” was shot in a rural hospital in Bayside and required twelve gallons of blood and birth fluid from real livestock. The video features all five band members… in unexpected circumstances.
“The challenges of getting a 7-foot drummer to be born from a 70 year-old woman are painfully obvious,” says Johnson. “But we did it,” says Mitnick.
