The promotional music video for “Lonely Boy” features actor/musician/part-time security guard Derrick T. Tuggle dancing and lip-syncing to the song in a motel near Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The video, shot in a single take, went viral and garnered more than 400,000 views on YouTube within 24 hours. The video originally had a script and a cast of more than 40 people, but the group was not pleased with the results. Auerbach said, “A couple of weeks after we shot it they sent us the edit and it was awful. We sent it back… they sent us another edit and it was terrible. That’s when we said ‘what about that one guy, the extra who had that one dance scene’ and that’s the video – the most expensive single shot ever recorded.”[4]
