According to an unimpressed podcast host, There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson shot a new Radiohead video in her suburban LA neighborhood.
Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, an author and standup comic, recently let news of the music video slip in an episode of her podcast series, For Crying Out Loud.
The host apparently broke a non-disclosure agreement when she told a story about the Boogie Nights filmmaker shooting part of the new video in her house.
“Oh, this happened, I forgot to tell you! So, I’m at home and there’s a knock at the door… there’s a guy with a clipboard. I come to the door with a scowl on my face and the guy says, ‘Hey, we’re in the neighborhood, we’re going to be shooting a music video.’ So now, I’m thinking you’re basically telling me – what happens a lot in my neighborhood, because it’s a very typical suburban looking neighborhood – I’m gonna be inconvenienced.”
Wilder-Taylor went on to say that she was offered $200 for them to shoot at her home. “Then the guy goes – ‘it’s Radiohead!’ I can’t tell you anything about it. I’m guessing that’s the non-disclosure part. Between us girls, Radiohead – I don’t give a shit, I don’t get it. I’ve heard one song I don’t care about – ‘Creep’. Yeah, you’re a creep and a loser and you’re putting me to sleep.”
Despite being unimpressed by Radiohead, the podcast host was surprised to learn that Paul Thomas Anderson was directing the shoot. “I was like, ‘Oh shit!’”
Anderson has previously worked with the band’s Jonny Greenwood on the soundtracks for his films There Will Be Blood, The Master and Inherent Vice.
The British band has announced summer tour dates for their ninth album, which is expected to arrive later this year.
