The music video follows the band as they walk around downtown Dayton and into local businesses and popular gathering holes. If you look closely, you’ll also notice that Jim Macpherson, the drummer for the Breeders, also makes an appearance in Yuppie’s video as a party-goer.
Daytonian filmmaker Ethan Frederick, who premiered his short film “Trust Fall” at the Neon last year, is the video’s director. The live-action art and elaborate costumes were painted by Tiffany Clark, an artist and the creator of Mural Machine.
The production of the music video was funded by Operation Encore, a non-profit veteran music project that is designed to help veterans find success with their musical careers. Sliver, Yuppie's lead singer, is a Marine Corps veteran and has been with Operation Encore for almost a year. You can visit operationencore.org to donate or show your support for Operation Encore.
