Clearly it was time Lou Reed’s ‘No Money Down’ video was remade for the 21st century,” says Britt Daniel, adding, “We did the research, and it turns out 80 percent of our fan base is composed of graphic designers. This one’s for y’all.”

Set in the world of a YouTube Photoshop tutorial, Spoon have released what may be one of the most simple-yet-brilliant music videos of all time for Hot Thoughts standout single, “Do I Have To Talk You Into It.” We’re here to help break it down…

Step 2 – Take some captivating photos of the notoriously sharp Britt Daniel

Step 3 – Erase his eyeballs
