Owen Pallett – “Lewis Takes Off His Shirt” Video
He’s Final Fantasy no more, but Owen Pallett’s video for “Lewis Takes Off His Shirt” matches the song’s racing heartbeat with a chaotic clip full of costumes, role-playing, stage fighting, and OCD-esque object stacking and patterning. The M. Blash-directed clip was shot in Blash’s loft in New York, and it feels lovingly handmade and friend-made. According to Pallett, they finished the shoot in one (very busy, very fun) day. The video’s dancing pixie is Alison Pill, who was in Milk and is currently in The Miracle Worker on Broadway. Also: Owen takes off his shirt.
