I like this song a lot, and I like the video a lotter. I don’t know if its the handsome face of Dan Croll or the fact that all the band members look like super kind bike mechanics, but it just feels right within the first few seconds. Maybe its the Beirut sound that gives way to the mild rock n’ roll. Maybe its the nearly expressionless face of Mr. Croll in comparison to the guitarist’s high-kicking, low-squatting, fretboard-licking energy that is both genuine and adorable. I mean, it is that energy that gives us a nipple shot at 1:14.
There is another video for this song, that is more Wes Anderson-y and glossy, but I prefer the beige, low-budget version…and there’s confetti in this one. Who doesn’t love slow motion confetti?
