YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “Aroused” by Tom Vek
I would just like to say that I don’t condone smoking, and I’ve never touched a cigarette. That being said, Tom Vek’s “Aroused” video makes it look pretty darn appealing. Of the legions of beautiful people smoking ciggies, Tom says (to Nowness): “It’s a nod to the way in which smoking is used heavily and quite innocently in art and fashion. In the video, it represents feelings of being overwhelmed and extremities — both of which tie in with the sentiment of the album.” I can’t speak to that, but I can say that the video certainly ties in with its title.
