Califone isn’t one for being showy — even their “interactive” video from earlier this year is a lesson in passivity. The visuals for “We Are A Payphone” look in at someone else’s nostalgia trip, as our unseen protagonist applies meaning and memories to objects the viewer has no attachment to. It’s an odd effect (and takes a dark turn in the middle) but it’s fitting for the maudlin song that accompanies it. The clip was made by Buffy alum Amber Benson and Angela Bettis. Watch below.
