WATCH: Caribou’s Mystic, Multicolored Creature Takes Flight in Video for “Can’t Do Without You”
Dan Snaith also announced a contest to give away the video's hovering rainbow beast.
If they don’t wind up in an dark and dusty warehouse somewhere, most sets and props from video shoots are destroyed after being used. But Caribou‘s Dan Snaith doesn’t want this to happen to the centerpiece of his new video for “Can’t Do Without You,” and once you watch it, you’ll see why.
The video for the opening track of Our Love—one of our favorite albums of 2014—shows a young boy running through the forest with a giant, floating, otherworldly fish-beast that looks like something from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki. That leviathan piñata can be yours, if you convince Snaith to give it to you. Head here to email Snaith with your plan for the creature’s future, and if he likes your idea the best, he’ll ship the thing to you. All twelve feet of it.
Caribou is hitting Coachella again this weekend before heading to Europe for a summer full of shows.
