    Liked the song…but did she smush The Man in the Sand in her hand?

      I think so!

      I mean, when she walks off, her hands are empty and there was no continuity-shot of her dumping the manned-sand into her pocket or suchlike.

    I didn’t even know Matt Mahurin was directing. And REM’s ‘Orange Crush,’ all the way back in ’89.
