The National have released the video for "Dark Side Of The Gym", directed, choreographed and starring NYC Ballet Resident Choreographer and soloist Justin Peck and executive produced by former Miami City Ballet dancer and current dance filmmaker Ezra Hurwitz. Also starring former Miami City Ballet mentor and Principal dancer, Patricia Delgado, the video finds the duo gracefully move around a balloon filled auditorium.

The video premiered via 'New Yorker' who described it as "essentially an extended pas de deux, highly technical but low-key, intimate, and a little sexy...The song and the video read like a love letter. At the end, as the music frays and the dancing stops, the camera settles on Delgado's sorrowful, vulnerable expression."
