The seven-man band made sure their guest appearance on the hit late-night comedy sketch show would be remembered for a long time, grabbing viewers' attentions with their eccentric performances. For "Reflector", they exhibited the same broken glass and mirror-filled concept they had for its Anton Corbijn-directed black-and-white visuals that they premiered earlier this month.
