A new music video from The Tragically Hip

With the massive new Road Apples box set coming this month, The Tragically Hip decided to get all retro and nostalgic with a new video based on “Not Necessary,” a Road Apples outtake that originally appeared on the Saskadelphia album back in the spring.

Directed by Sara Basso and starring Emily Hampshire (remember her from Schitts Creek?), the video is designed to take us back to 1991, the year Road Apples was released. It’s also the prequel to the video she shot for “Ouch.” As in the first video, see if you can find any Hip-related Easter eggs.
