The band left an update on their official web site discussing their latest project, a music video! Here's what they had to say:
"Video with music: The Weakerthans, along with our visual collaborators - Simon and Caelum (directors of all our previous video) - shot a music video for the song Our Retired Explorer Dines with Michel Foucault in Paris, 1961.
We spent a day carousing on frozen Lake Winnipeg in March. Speeding across slushy ice in a 1950's Auto-neige (aka bombadier) on snowmobiles and on dog sleds (for real!) in period appropriate explorer costumes. (Really, does anything sound more fun?) The video features an animatronic penguin, John K as an 80 year old man, JPS as Michel Foucault, a recreation of Richard Bird's Antarctic hut where he spent 6 months and well lots of beautiful footage of frozen Lake Winnipeg. Video will begin airing sometime in the Future, start requesting it now."
