What happens when you enter the dreams of a teenage boy who fell asleep while watching a commercial for a phone sex hotline? Well, more often than not, after a little obligatory PG-13 rated boyhood fantasy imagery ripped straight out of Weird Science, what’s left is a lot of anxiety about a lack of athleticism and fears of emasculation. No one said the mind of a teenage boy was pretty.
This video for “Dream Girl” is extremely well-suited for this song; the synths have a sensual, fantasy-like quality to them while the frenetic handclaps have a chopped-up, slightly off-beat rhythm that definitely makes one feel anxious. The whole package put all together is absolutely memorable and I’m really loving this video right now.
