Watch The National shotgun beers and Slip ‘n Slide in their video for ‘Graceless’

thenationalgracelessThe National just released the video for their Trouble Will Find Me track Graceless. It features the band shotgunning beers, riding a Slip ‘n Slide, and doing everything but a dunk contest in a swimming pool. From Rolling Stone:

Alcohol also played a big part in the band’s forthcoming video for the track “Graceless,” from their recent Trouble Will Find Me album. “[It] involved a great deal of binge drinking beer,” he said. “We shot it at my mom and dad’s house in Cincinnati and kind of destroyed the place and ourselves along the way.”

Proving binge drinking and making videos is a combination that should only be left to the pros, the band suffered a series of mishaps throughout the filming. “I gave myself a minor concussion, head injury on the slip and slide,” bassist Scott Devendorf said.

“I had a serious face injury, Bryce [Dessner] had a back injury,” Berninger said. How did he do it? “Riding a bike into a swimming pool and my face hit the water hard all three times,” he said. “I had glasses on, I had bruises around my eyes where the glasses hit. It was the most brutal video we’ve ever done. It was really fun, but it cost us. No one died, though.”
