For the 'Say Yes to Me' video we worked with our friends Bobby Keegan and Lucas Marchesani. They both worked with us on the 'Floating Vibes' video off of our first record and we were looking to do something with a similar charm, but spookier. We had just been dropped from Warner Brothers and knew we were doomed financially-- we would have no budget and very little time. Our plan was to shoot the entire video in one night at a diner called Howley's in our home town, West Palm Beach. Howley's was a frequent hang-out for our dinner breaks during recording of the 'Tarot Classics' EP as well as the demos for 'Pythons'. The staff was accommodating and we managed to get the all the shots we needed in one night, while the bedroom shots were filmed in Thomas' mom's guest bedroom later that same evening.

Surfer Blood put out the album Pythons last year and have just shared this new video for “Say Yes To Me.” According to Rolling Stone, the band received the news that they were dropped by Warner Brothers shortly before filming, and forced to make the clip for next to nothing. It finds frontman John Paul Pitts playing a diner employee with his fellow bandmates as bummed out diners before he provides then with some psychedelic condiments. -- Stereogum
