VIDEO: Behind-the-scenes of Hozier's Take Me To Church video in Cork

The video for Hozier’s Take Me To Church, which was filmed in Cork, is up for two awards in tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles - and now a timely behind-the-scenes look at the award-winning video has been released.

The music video was filmed at Inniscarra Dam and follows the same-sex relationship between two men, and their struggles when homophobic violence comes into their lives.

The behind-the-scenes video, released by Damien Murphy of Limbo Media, is a lot less serious. It shows the cast joking with each other on day three of the shoot, even when filming some of the darker scenes.

Hozier himself even makes an appearance.

The actors, whose voices aren’t heard in the music video, chat about techniques, are seen playing around with props, and ask the all important question: what is in the box?

It turns out no one knows what the gang were obsessing over in the dark scenes.

However, director Brendan Canty has promised that all will be revealed on the VMA stage if the video wins big in LA tonight.
