"The video came about during a dark and rainy night in L.A. as the dystopian side of Los Angeles played the perfect backdrop to the search for our lost cat," DJ Booth tells Spinner. "The dream-like state pays homage to the old Canadian late-night television series 'Night Drive' and the grindhouse road films of the '70s."
The clip also shares aesthetic affinity with last year's indie hit 'Drive.' In the Super-8 style video, which was written by Jokers of the Scene in collaboration with Mike H, the pair spend a night cruising through Los Angeles' neon desert in search for their forgotten feline. Spoiler alert: It doesn't end so well. We are still trying to figure out why this video is called 'Black Mountie,' as it is not in Canada, there are no mounted Canadian policemen, and there aren't even any horses. But oh well, we like it anyway. Check it out below.
