There's something lo-fi, off-the-cuff and "anti" about the about Tegan and Sara's "Boyfriend" video — which are all phrases that I would use to describe Robin Thicke's notorious "Blurred Lines" smash. But instead of a topless Emily Ratajkowski and the other women who apparently didn't capture the media's attention, we have designer Rachel Antonoff and actresses Sarah Ramos and Mae Whitman, who keep trying to spruce up this mostly bare video, while TeSara stay focused on signing the song and getting this damned (yet awesome) video finished.
Take the movie Drive. Replace movie heartthrob Ryan Gosling with music video heartthrob Daniel Schienert — aka 1/2 of directing duo Daniels — and lose all the violence so that you can fit in way more sexiness. The result is the very short film Boy Racers, which doubles as both a kinda/sorta Metronomy video and a cautionary tale about self-manipulating men in self-driving cars.
You might ask what's going on here. A new form of Yoga? A group of models on a vision quest? A cult? Or, you might relax and just enjoy the unexpected beauty as it mysteriously unfolds in this video for Broods.
And if you watch and wonder if there's a more explicit version of this video, the answer would of course be yes — watch the directors cut.
