Another heartbreaking video of staggering genius by Steve Roggenbuck.
A music video by Daytona Beach teen Kitty Pryde has the internet in a stranglehold, partly because it's awful and partly because it's so, so good. Some ridicule it for Pryde's mumbling half-rap and cheesy girl-crush lyrics, others (most notably Vice) praise it for being a funny, self-aware take on the life of suburban teenager. And if it's bad and kind of goofy, it's supposed to be bad and kind of goofy.
What do you guys think? Could you only last ten seconds or did you hit the replay button?
When the Black Keys first released a music video for their single Gold on the Ceiling, it consisted of fairly standard footage from their live tour - long stretches of highway, excited fans, and leather jackets.
Now there's a new video directed by oddball Harmony Korine, and the light of day has never seen the fresh hell from whence it was dragged. Filmed in a VHS found footage style à la the Blair Witch, the Black Keys play the palsied twins of larger, more deformed versions of themselves. They spend most of their time sitting around and twitching their heads. Watch it, but be advised that we're not liable for the nightmares you'll have tonight.
...and they've got a video that tells the classic story of success, stardom, crippling defeat, regret, reunion, and bromanship. Also, [SPOILER] Val Kilmer gets shot. I guess this means we'll be hearing their third and possibly Best Album in All of Space and Time from them soon.
