In the clip, it looks like Jim James is doing a solo performance. But as the song continues, the other members start appearing on the screen, which makes you wonder if they were all filmed separately or did a properly social-distanced performance. Midway through the song, all the members are collaged together to make you feel like you’re getting an intimate full band session.
