Elephant is the first track to be released from Tame Impala's second album Lonerism and the video was filmed by artist Yoshi Sodeoka, with live footage provided by The Silentlights.
Frontman Kevin Parker has been reported as saying that the song is not really a song about being a loner, but a song about the bully. He goes on to say "It's the guy who thinks he's great, the jock. Imagine a real reclusive guy who's a bit bitter about this guy who thinks he's great. Which is the opposite vibe of the loner, so it presents him in the worst light."
