Matching their goofy gobs of surrealist pop with a colorful, inventive, and juvenile in all the right ways kind of treatment, Austin's The Octopus Project brave the sea in this, their new video for "Wet Gold".

Looks like the band must have had a great day at the beach filming this one, right? Not so, explains Josh Lambert. "...it was wet and cold! We filmed it in Galveston a couple of months after the hurricane hit, so it was pretty devastated. The whole city (specifically the beach) was filled with debris and completely ripped up buildings - totally creepy. There was a pretty gnarly fog that day as well, so it only added to the eeriness. Making the video was a blast! Yvonne spent a couple of days learning semaphore and was spelling out "Wet Gold" when we filmed it. I've never been colder in my life. Standing in the ocean all day long in the middle of January wouldn't be first on my list of things to do in the future, but we had a ton of fun nonetheless!" Sure you did...
