Watch The Yeah Yeah Yeahs Atop The Empire State Building


Yeah Yeah Yeahs' second single from Mosquito, the wistfully pretty "Despair," has a dizzying new video to accompany it. The band headed atop the Empire State Building to film the clip, the first group to ever do so.

King Kong, Tom Hanks and Cary Grant were nowhere to be found on the 102-story skyscraper, but Karen O, NIck Zinner and Brian Chase seem vertigo-free running around in "Despair", which can be watch below via Noisey.
