Dvein asked Wilson from Alagoas about it and he explained to them that they wrote Ghosts during a road trip through the north of Spain. They were in Los Monegros, a desert that recalled them to the first settlers in the West of the U.S.and that is actually known for being the location of some of the Spaghetti Westerns from the 70s. He then gave them a master class in American history, introducing them to a stunning concept, the manifest destiny. An irresistible destiny that the American settlers had to conquer the West of the continent to expand their virtues. It was a moral mission.
They were amazed by that idea, and all that had to do with it and started researching on it discovering all the controversy around it and how the idea is, somehow, still in discussion. They found the 1872 painting American Progress by John Gast were Columbia, a giant woman, lead the settlers into the dark West taking their new technology and fascinating new thoughts.
So that triggered the idea in which is based the music video, a colorful psychedelic alien that arrives to an ancient settlement and fascinate them with his delightful movements and extravagant colors, mixed in a combination of ingredients that creates the Ghosts world and fantasy, a fun and playful approach to a concept as ambiguous as the manifest destiny.
