Sunderland gets supporting role in new music video from The Tragically Hip

The main street of Sunderland is prominently featured in The Tragically Hip’s new music video.

Directed by Sara Basso and starring Emily Hampshire — of Schitt’s Creek fame — the video for ‘Not Necessary’ opens with a bank robbery at the village’s CIBC branch.

The scene was shot in early October and features Hampshire making her escape from the branch to a waiting motorcycle with an alarm sounding and prop gun in hand.
