The video is centered around Robinson and his friends, who are being followed on what seems to be your average weekend day.

"I wrote 'Buriedfed' at five in the morning in Prospect Park in 2003, the summer before that I spent some time crashing on Coney Island. Hopefully the video gives some context to the words and music. Life sucks and then you die and it's hilarious. It would not be inaccurate to interpret this song as a comment on the death of post-war media, youthful ideals, and the economy."
