Published Aug 10, 2011A new video has been released for the National's "Exile Vilify." The track was penned for the popular videogame Portal 2, which resulted in the game's creator, Valve, teaming up with the band to hold a video contest for the track.
The winning clip has been chosen and belongs to director C.F. Meister. Surprisingly, it has little connection with the videogame, but instead provides a visual accompaniment to the track via a depressed sock puppet and his outdoor adventures. Check it out below.
You can get your hands on the most recent National album, High Violet, which is out now via 4AD.
