YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “Lovers Lane” by Hunx and His Punx
It’s true: you either love or hate Oakland band Hunx and His Punx. It just so happens that I love Seth Bogart and his badass Punkettes, and think “Lovers Lane” is a great addition to their collection of camp-tastic videos. While this one doesn’t feature an animated skunk (“Gimmie Gimmie Back Your Love”) or giant pink telephone (“Teardrops On My Telephone”), it does take us down Memory Lane–sort of–into the 1950’s. After jumping in the back of an old convertible Cadillac, Bogart and the girls head to a trippy Grease-style prom. After rocking out on stage, we see the outspoken frontman on his own: holding heart-shaped balloons and looking like a flamboyant Danny Zuko, he walks along the train tracks and blows us a cheeky, confident kiss.
