Beirut The video for 'Vagabond' can be viewed below.

The video was directed by Sunset Television who were also responsible for the video for 'Santa Fe.'

They said:

"We were really excited when Beirut asked us to direct another video, and knew we wanted to make something completely different from 'Santa Fe'. 'Vagabond' tells the story of a group of soldiers and sailors flirting with nurses and hard-living local girls at a dance. It was shot at the beautiful Warsaw dancehall in Greenpoint and inspired by the look of Milos Forman movies from the 60's. There were a couple of live chickens on set who were surprisingly easy to work with and natural onscreen. They also tended to shit the moment the camera was on them. With all the smoking, drinking, and advanced pregnancy, the video will probably be banned from MTV, so we hope lots of people enjoy it on the Internet."
