    Portugal. The Man released a video for the follow up single to their June album, Woodstock. The video for "Live in the Moment" finds the band riding in an 80's Cadillac Deville, which is being skateboarded around Portland by a gigantic puppet on the roof. Directed by Aaron Brown with production by Wieden+Kennedy Productions, the concept was apparently brought about hastily, but it somehow matches the track's upbeat, foot-stomping thump.

    One of Wieden+Kennedy's creative director Erik Fahrenkopf, said of the video's development:

    "The guys from Portugal. The Man asked us to create a music video for their single 'Live in the Moment.' We said, 'Yes!' Then we said, 'Hold on, when's it due?' And they were like, 'I don't know; you should talk to our manager, Rich.' And Rich said, 'Real soon.' We said, 'What if we worked with Lance Woolen to build a 10-foot puppet and had him ride around on a Cadillac like it was a skateboard, and then he gets chased by a 10-foot cop on top of a giant Segway?' Rich said, 'I don't know, lemme ask the band.' They said, 'That sounds pretty stupid. Can we shoot it next Thursday?' We said, 'How about Wednesday?' And they said, 'Wednesday's actually better.' And we said, 'Let's shoot in Portland, with a local crew. Even the stuntman.' And they said, 'Stuntman?' And we said, 'Yeah, we're gonna kickflip a Cadillac.' And they said, 'If we don't total the Cadillac, can we have it?' And we said, 'Of course.'"

    Portugal. The Man is currently on tour in support of Woodstock, which peaked at number 32 on the Billboard 200, powered by smash hit "Feel It Still". The tour spans North America, with stops planned throughout December of this year and continuing through early 2018. Tickets are available now on the Portugal. The Man website.
