Death Cab for Cutie – I Will Possess Your Heart Music Video

Published on April 4th, 2009 by

I designed and directed this 8 minute video for Death Cab for Cutie’s I Will Possess Your Heart about a year ago. Since then, it’s gotten over 200,000 views on youtube. Unfortunately Warner Music decided to remove or mute the sound on all DCFC youtube videos, including official ones posted by the band. I thought fans might enjoy seeing the video with sound via this original version.

Also check out my Death Cab For Cutie photosets on Flickr. Lots more pix of Ben & crew to drool over:

The plugin takes about 10 seconds to load, so if it doesn’t appear immediately, just be patient. 🙂

    Awesome clip! You should be very proud! I LOVE this song! Warner & other music groups are so f-ing greedy! Don’t they realize music videos are promotional tools? To help sell the CDs & also promote the band, as well (touring & merchandising, etc.)! Radio, and especially MTV suck in terms of promoting GOOD new music, and YouTube has the potential to promote the music, getting it out to the entire world! Most new music I buy is music I learn about from YouTube, or other similar sites! OK, I’m preaching to the converted! I’m off my soapbox now!

    I think this would be a great tune for a serial killer/stalker flick. Awesome tune.
