All the press that you have heard is true. The band did all their own stunts. Lots of laughter from musicians that can sometime sound a bit down and reportedly never crack a smile (not true). They were really into the video. Possibly just happy that they didn't have to lip synch for 12 hours and got to act instead. Cameos by every member of the band.
