Jack's Mannequin's "The Resolution" Music Video debuts on MTV

The music video for "The Resolution" by Jack's Mannequin has debuted on MTV.com. You can now watch this video right there in our sidebar. :)

If you will recall, Stephenie Meyer created the concept for the video and she served as a creative consultant and co-director alongside veteran music video director Noble Jones.

The final video seems to have changed a bit compared to the original concept that she and Jack's Mannequin frontman, Andrew McMahon, revealed in this MTV interview:

Meyer came up with the concept for the video after ruminating on the lyrics: "I can hear the sound of your voice still ringing in my ear/ I'm going underground but you find me anywhere I fear." So, as singer/songwriter Andrew McMahon performs "The Resolution," he's lured into the ocean by the siren song of a mermaid with fire-red hair who wants him to be hers. He tries to resist, but he ends up ditching the piano for "a dip in the Pacific in all my clothes," McMahon laughed.

"It's sort of a fable," Meyer said. "This mermaid doesn't take no for an answer. The more he tries to get away from her, the greater lengths she goes to be able to reach him, and so that ends up meaning a lot of water climbing things. He's running from the water. Even if he climbs a mountain, it still comes after him."

"Essentially, the tide is rising and keeps following us," McMahon said.

But the final video still looks great and the song will make for a good earworm. :p

So what did you guys think of the video? Post your thoughts in the comments section.
