Conceived by QOTSA frontman Joshua Homme, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, and produced by Serial Pictures, the video is described by the band as “a fever dream Satanic dance ritual extravaganza—featuring Homme lighter on his feet and darker in his soul than ever before.” Despite the numerous costume changes, sets, and dance routines, production took place in just one day in Los Angeles.
In a statement, Homme says the video is “our way of paying tribute to Cab Calloway and the film Hellzapoppin’, adding, “I fully realize that may be a little more than some are open to, and that’s perfectly fine with me. There’s the door. If some of the more close-minded are gently pruned, that just leaves more room on the dance floor for the open-minded ones to get loose. That’s been the spirit of Queens Of The Stone Age and the space we’ve worked to create from day one.”
