Terri Timely have made videos for The Little Ones' songs Oh MJ! and Lovers Who Uncover, and in each case featured ordinary people to tell delightfully outlandish stories.

Their third Little Ones video is no different in making great use of a cast of extras, but here it's the method of the storytelling that's ingenious. We follow the path of a song from recording to radio and into people's everyday lives, but the camera passes from one scene to another in (more or less) one move.

Special credit to production design team Zoe Kim and Sarah Applebaum for creating numerous interior and exterior scenes in one studio. But essentially it's further confirmation that the gentle, deadpan style of the Timelys (that's Corey Creasey and Ian Kibbey of San Francisco, California) and the melodious indie pop of The Little Ones go hand in glove.
