YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “Cloisonné” by They Might Be Giants
The video for “Cloisonné” by They Might Be Giants should be normal: the band’s just playing in a recording studio. How many of those videos have you seen? But in TMBG fashion, the video’s slightly kooky. The whole film is tinted blue, the studio walls are covered with pictures of William Allen White (newspaper editor and Progressive movement leader from the turn of the century, of course); the song itself is typically off-beat, and the whole effect is a wee bit silly.
