"Mr. Brightside" is a song by The Killers which is about the bands lead singer Brandon Flowers' ex-girlfriend who cheated on him. Flowers recalled to Q magazine March 2009 how he discovered her with another man at the Crown and Anchor pub in his hometown of Las Vegas: "I was asleep and I knew something was wrong. I have these instincts. I went to the Crown and Anchor and my girlfriend was there with another guy." Flowers added that the song was "born" at the Crown and Anchor.

In the video, actress Izabella Miko (of Coyote Ugly) plays the girlfriend. Eric Roberts (Julia's brother) also stars in the video. (thanks, julia - london, England)

The director of the video, Sophie Muller, has directed over 100 videos, including several for Gwen Stefani's solo album. (thanks, erourke - Raleigh, NC)
