This music video is unlike most—all the footage comes from a 1994 short film shot by Anthony Green's cousin, Jonathan Michaels. 

According to the YouTube video description, Michaels was building his film school portfolio and asked then 12-year-old Green to act in one of the projects.

His reward? A copy of The Smiths' seminal album, The Queen Is Dead, which Green promptly fell in love with.

Give the video a watch below!

The band’s new album, The Amulet, is set to make its debut Sept. 22, and it's currently available for preorder here.
