Lord Huron - "Mighty" video

Unlike the sprawling ice fields featured in "The Stranger", the second video from Los Angeles based but intrepid world traveler Ben Schneider's band Lord Huron focuses on the hot and vast wilds of Africa. Well mostly. In the video for "Mighty" there's vintage found footage of a family of leopards as they do battle against hyenas, gazelle, and cobras along with numerous visuals of boats and the sea and even a little bit of animation to spice things up. And while that might sound like the most exciting thing ever (which it totally is, by the way), the video by Yuki Aizawa makes it work. It's very National Geographic but in a cool way. Plus who can turn down another chance to hear this balmy, upbeat track again?
