YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “Shooting Up Sunshine” by Reptile Youth
This happy, optimistic song belongs on a coming of age movie soundtrack along the lines of Lucas. At first glance, this video seems to scream “sex sells!” but as the viewer is hooked by the hook of the song, we start to realize that this is just a sexy girl who’s into the music. We start to relate to her dancing and singing the song everywhere she goes and before you know it, we realize it’s not the sex that’s selling, it’s the track! Go on now, you know you want to: hold your iPod high over your head while you dance and sing to this video. We won’t look.
