A golden rule of music videos is that the actors in the narrative almost never hear the music. Director Saman Kesh wildly subverts that by having actors Martin Starr and Milana Vayntrub (and anyone near them) be tormented by this Hot Chip song mysteriously playing at loud volumes everywhere they go until they reach their breaking point.
A cut-and-paste eye and mouth technique makes this the strangest beauty video ever, but it also serves a practical purpose in concealing identities when the cops show to arrest director Carlos Lopez Estrada and bust this guerilla video shoot.
Permits? We need permits?
Luckily, things get back on track for further twists and turns.
Never trust a bartender who garnishes your whiskey with a broken mirror shard. Unless he speaks French (Swiss?) and reminds you of all that is great about Serge Gainsbourg — well, almost everything that is great — and unless he's willing to drink his own poison and got the Moves Like Walken.
PS: You know the saying that you are what you eat? Well, you're also what you drink and all those mirrored shards might wind up forming something fabulous.
