The Smashing Pumpkins – Today

The classic 1990s music video for “Today” by The Smashing Pumpkins was filmed in the small town of Taft, California.  In the early scenes of the music video, singer Billy Corgan parks his ice cream truck next to the former Schmidt’s Fotoshop and sits on the sidewalk.  Although the building has long since been abandoned, it hasn’t changed much and is still recognizable.

It’s actually not the only music video to film there.  The Weeknd’s video for “Call Out My Name” filmed on the same street and the same building can be seen in many shots.
