Music Video Monday: "All The Pretty Girls"

Track: All The Pretty Girls
Artist: fun.
Album: Aim and Ignite
Year: 2009

The video for this fun.'s "All The Pretty Girls" came out fairly recently, so I figured it'd be worth giving a look for today's Monday feature.

Functioning mainly as an ironic commentary on both band life, and their own lives as well, "All The Pretty Girls" depicts the members of fun. running from a crazed group of females. Originally running away from separate crowds, members Nate Ruess (The Format), Andrew Dost (Anathallo) and Jack Antonoff (Steel Train) eventually meet in typical comedic fashion, and then proceed to run together, before being trapped in a building. Suddenly, the three are talking pinatas of themselves, and are subsequently beaten by the mob with sticks. This is where the irony vanishes, since the songs more works to convey a version this point, than the previous one.

The other brief point of interest is the band's selection of attire for the video. Really skinny jeans, moccasins, white pants, a jean jacket, a cut-off plaid shirt and a pseudo-Sgt. Pepper's jacket all make appearances-- perhaps a further commentary, or just random clothing selection? Regardless, the wardrobe choices do stand out, which I suppose is one of the points of a video to begin with. Check it out below if you haven't already.
