"What's special about 'Half a Million' is that it's a stop-motion video made from 5,566 stickers," explains

Lizzie Plaugic

of the new music video from The Shins. "Handmade stickers. First, [directors] LAMAR+NIK filmed the band playing the track against a white background, then edited it, and printed out 4,868 frames. Then, they stuck each frame on top of the next in various locations, like a library, a spa, and a pile of cheese and meats. The effect is like high-brow vandalism created by highly motivated vandals."
