"Wishes," by Beach House

The Baltimore music scene has given us plenty of great "what the fuck?" moments in the many music videos it has produced. Now imagine a local band empowered by a big budget. That's pretty much what you have in this Beach House video, directed by absurdist bon vivant Eric Wareheim, that includes: Ray Wise of Twin Peaks fame mouthing the words of Victoria Legrand over eager cheerleaders twirling large swords and nunchuks, fireworks, horses, and a high school stadium full of spectators, some in horse masks, awaiting the start of a futuristic lacrosse-polo hybrid. So yeah, that is a thing that happened and it's as glorious as it sounds.
