The Offspring bring out a new music video to promote their new single "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid". Assisted by Chris Hopewell, the same director who helped making the music video of Radiohead's "Take There", the video mostly narrates mankind as a creature having a never-satisfied basic character.
The music video starts with a capture of a peasant working in a garden. Suddenly, a plant goddess appears and gives the peasant a magical, golden acoustic guitar and he begins strumming to the song. Entering town and playing for the locals with his magical abilities of the guitar, the peasant becomes famous and that earns him much money.
As the video continues rolling on, the peasant is seen playing for infested townspeople. Wanting more than the money he has, the peasant demands from one of them her expensive necklace while the plant goddess looks upon him with a disapproving look. On the next scene, the plant goddess appears, takes the guitar away from him and pulls him underground as punishment for his greed. The guitar lands onto the floor and dissolves into leaves at the end of the song.
"You're Gonna Go Far, Kid" is the second single off the band's eight major studio album "Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace". Spending almost two years in its writing and recording sessions, the effort is produced by Bob Rock and has been released in June via Columbia Records.
