Some good old fashioned violence with a twist in this new Thee Oh Sees video

Posted by Liv Siddall,

It’s that classic situation – you go to dispose of a body, someone sees you, you dispose of them, someone sees that and then you have to dispose of three people rather than just one! Typical. This video is brilliant. You don’t get too many music videos these days that are beautifully-crafted short stories, but this one is a perfect example of just how well that formula works. Directed by John Strong who, it’s worth saying, is renowned for his gruesome, boundary-pushing videos, this tale of murder mis-hap is as hilarious as it is disturbing. The fact that it’s for a truly magnificent Oh Sees song is the blood-red icing on the cake. Watch to the end – you won’t regret it.
