Lost Cause is the fifth song by Beck from his fifth major-label studio album, Sea Change. It was released as a promo single. Two music videos were made for "Lost Cause", both being directed by Garth Jennings. The original video features an effigy of Beck falling from the sky. It was produced entirely in Adobe Photoshop. The second version just features the band playing the song. The song was featured prominently in the Ben Stiller movie, Along Came Polly. .
