'Dark Necessities' Video: Red Hot Chili Peppers Share Olivia Wilde–Directed Clip

When they're not covering The Beatles or going topless for James Corden's now-famous Carpool Karaoke, the California greats of Red Hot Chili Peppers are working with beloved actresses on new music videos. Earlier this month we reported that the band was working with Olivia Wilde ( of House, Vinyl, and Tron: Legacy fame) on a visual for their latest single, "Dark Necessities." Photographs on set emerged, you can check them out here

Today RHCP have dropped the video. Watch it above via Facebook.

The clip shows the band performing the track in a very vintage-looking room. The rest of the vid is made up of shots of professional longboarders Carmen Shafer, Amanda Caloia, Amanda Powell and Noelle Mulligan ripping through grocery stores and other public locales.

Enjoy it, then watch an archival interview with Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith talking about the band's initial hesitancy to play the Super Bowl with Bruno Mars:
