In addition to leaking the new single as a free MP3 download, Cloud Cult is shooting a music video for the song in St. Paul this Sunday, March 2, at Como Park.
A large crowd of extras is needed for the shoot—no experience necessary, so long as you can stand and look expressionless, as well as jump on command. The shoot will take place outside in the East Picnic Grounds (by the baseball field) of Como Park. Those interested are encouraged to arrive at the park promptly at 10 a.m. on March 2nd and bring their friends. The more, the merrier on this one. (Please also take a moment to forward this on to your friends and their friends and the friends of those friends of the other friends … ideally, Kevin Bacon will show himself for this one.)
The video will be shot outdoors, and will take upwards of 3 to 4 hours, so please dress to stay warm. You will be rewarded (with memories) for your time.
THE CONCEPT OF THE VIDEO: An overwhelmingly large crowd of people stand expressionless in a field, while band members pop out as faces within the crowd singing the new single from Cloud Cult as the camera drifts though everyone gathered. Eventually, the video evolves into a rambunctious party, and extras will be needed to jump and celebrate (in a snowy field).
WHAT: Extras needed for music video shoot of Cloud Cult’s new single, “Everybody Here is a Cloud,” off of the forthcoming release Feel Good Ghosts (due out April 8th). Listen to the track here
WHEN: This Sunday, March 2nd at 10 a.m.
WHERE: Show up in the baseball field within the East Picnic Grounds of Como Park in St. Paul, MN.

NOTE: This is not a pyramid scheme.
WARNING: Slow motion will be used.
