An Amusing Video

Every once in awhile, I get exposed to a few music videos that I actually enjoy. One of which is The Gossip's "Standing In the Way Of Control." The video looks like it could have been made in the local mall, but this actually works out well. It's a stab in the direction of originality for this group from Olympia, Washington.

With the use of laughable graphics (keep an eye out for ass tattoos and brushing teeth) and the intense enthuiasm of vocalist Beth Ditto, the video is a visual and auditory treat for the viewer. I particularly like the opening scene where the anonymous bassist (see ski mask) gets molested by a big cartoon hand. Enjoy!

Why does it seem that every band from Olympia, Washington has a portly, obnoxious looking singer? What's up with that?!?!!
