Music video[edit]

The music video for "Blind Pilots" features Michael Fassbender in the role of a man who, engaged to his fiancée, goes out with friends for drinking and partying throughout the night, but unbeknownst to him, his girlfriend placed a talisman on a neckchain around his neck before he left. As he imbibes more alcohol with his friends, he begins turning into a satyr and his temperament leads him to become more harsh and isolated towards his friends until he leaves them for another club, where he completely turns into a satyr. He then gives into greater temptation around the female dancers at the strip club, but eventually experiences a more painful transformation as he rushes out, this time turning into a goat by the end of the video. The video is directed by Scott Lyon.
