Bright Eyes "Easy/Lucky/Free" Saddle CreekLily Thome & Lauri Faggioni, directorsPartizan, production companyDescription: A pretty simple video in the spirit of Bob Dylan's oft-imitated video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Conor Oberst aka Bright Eyes walks out of a room and starts to write the song lyrics on a pane of glass that separates him from the camera.
This video stars actress Evan Rachel Wood and actors Terrance Stamp and Brady Corbett as passengers on a plane that is in serious trouble. Unlike the crash that is the subject of Bright Eyes singer Conor Oberst's opening monologue, this plane is getting repeatedly swallowed by a giant cloud puppet.
