Death From Above 1979 Explain ‘Virgins’ Video in Behind-the-Scenes Clip
If you ever wondered where the inspiration for Death From Above 1979's "Virgins" video came from, you're in luck: The band has just released a new clip revealing what spawned the idea -- check it out above.
"Anytime I would listen to the song on my own, I would always imagine a really amazing party scene," director Eva Michon says in the video. "And when I was thinking about pitching an idea for the video, I thought, 'Well how do to take a really exciting party and mix it with the idea of virginity and that was an Amish Rumspringa party."
Michon wasn't the only one who shaped the direction of the video; the behind-the-scenes clip explains that even the young cast members gave their own input on how the party scene should be filmed. Meanwhile, Grainger couldn't help but laugh at how absurd the video looks considering how hard the song rocks.
"I'm really excited to see how it all turns out because it's so weird," Granger said. "This is rock and roll? This is a rock and roll video? We're dressed as sheriffs and everyone is dressed as Amish kids. It's great."
