From nautical themes to green screens, the Marr-ified Modest Mouse have covered lots of territory with their videos for We Were Dead Before We Finished Typing This Album Title, but never have they fucked with time quite like they have here, in the clip for the lovely “Little Hotel.” It goes backwards! Like when Seinfeld went to India. Or like in that one video by everybody’s favorite band. Trick’s been done, but it always works somehow. Moving, even if there’s some left unexplained. Think it deserves a slot in our list of best backwards videos of all time?
