No Game No Plot

After getting to work with the Pixies a few years back with The Show, SD and BB can now cross another music-related item off their lifetime to do list: directing a music video for The Breeders.

Assembled in whatever free time they could spare, including many late night IM sessions where approximately 700 treatments were written, discussed, and ultimately abandoned.
