MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge) is Reborn in Said The Whale’s “I Love You” Video

Said The Whale have released the official video for their song, “I Love You”. The video features the band as contestants on a remake of MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge), a SpikeTV show from the early aughts comprised of re-cut footage of the already over-the-top cult classic Japanese game show Takeshi’s Castle.

“The show was cancelled in 2007, which is the same year our band formed,” said front man Tyler Bancroft. “Our new music video is our attempt at one last episode – a tribute to one of the zaniest shows on television, and one that we spent a lot of inebriated hours watching in our late-teens/early 20s.”

“I Love You” appears on hawaiii, arriving September 17th via Hidden Pony Records.
