Last month, we premiered Party Supplies' "Going Back to New York" (The Knocks remix) video, shot by Complex's very own Rik Cordero with Super 8mm film as a true ode to the old New York City.
Today, we're going behind the scenes on the video shoot to see just what inspired them, and how they created the perfect visuals that pretty much take you on a joy ride around NYC and its surrounding areas.
"Before shooting the video, Justin and I decided right away that we wanted to show parts of NYC that were relatively obscure and part of an Old New York that’s been around for decades," Cordero says about creating the video. "We both grew up around places like the dystopian Willets Point, the classic 24 hour Cherry Valley Deli in Whitestone and the historical Fort Totten in Queens so those locations felt more personal to us."
