Music video[edit]

The video for "My Favorite Accident" was shot at Joshua Cain's brother's home on a very limited budget,[1] and has been noted for "poking fun at your usual music video relationship". The video features frontman Justin Pierre going through a rough patch in his relationship with a large pink bunny rabbit. It also includes the band's moog player, Jesse Johnson, doing his now famous "moogstand", where he does a handstand on his moog synthesizer.
