The New Pornographers go to Cuba for 'Champions of Red Wine' video

Posted on

Being in a foreign place can be challenging—but it can also be beautiful, as the Cuba-centric video for The New Pornographers’ “Champions of Red Wine” proves.

The video follows someone introduced as “a prehistoric man” wandering through Cuba’s streets and wordlessly interacting with the locals. His facial expressions waffle between confusion and wonder and hurt, but the clip ends with him happily baptizing himself in the bright blue Atlantic. 

“Champions of Red Wine” is the fourth single released off The New Pornographers’ 2014 album, Brill Bruisers. Watch the video below.
