Gorgeous' Frank Budgen directed this for Fallon, Minneapolis reuniting with editor Angus Wall of Rock Paper Scissors (www.rockpaperscissors.com), and VFX supervisor Pat Murphy of a52 (www.a52.com). They created a story that unfolds in the skies above America, as we see thousands of small red umbrellas elegantly floating above. As we hear "Worries" from the incomparable folk star Langhorne Slim, we watch as the hypnotic flotilla moves from the ocean, over the countryside and, finally, into the skyscraper-filled canyons of a city where they gently drift down to protect a home, a car and a business.
