Tegan and Sara Stare into the Camera, Your Soul in “Body Works” Video

Tegan and Sara, or Change

Intern Grace’s Team Pick:

If you are emotionally invested in the success of Tegan and Sara, you are basically morally obligated to watch the new video for “Body Works” by Morgan Page featuring everyone’s favorite Canadian lesbian indie singers. And really, what’s better than watching two talented women fold laundry for several minutes anyways?

The song itself is good, dance-y pop, and in the video, Tegan and Sara do their traditional staring-into-the-camera-slash-your-soul thing while everyone else dances at this club/gym thing around them. Also, a beefy man spins them around at one point? I don’t know, I’m just here for the haircuts and ethereal voices. The Wonder Twins aren’t even really on screen as much as one would hope, which is disappointing on several levels.

Also, because it’s technically a Morgan Page song (if you say so), you can’t quite check off all of the Definitive Elements of Every Tegan & Sara Music Video, but you can find more than half of them. It’s like Where’s Waldo but with weird Tegan faces.

In conclusion:

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And support from readers like you keeps the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers do not support. Autostraddle is fundraising right now to keep our site funded through January 2022. Will you join our community of readers in helping to keep us around?

Grace Ellis has been writing and making hack-job graphics for Autostraddle since 2011 and is a co-creator and co-writer of the comic book series Lumberjanes. She is mostly an intern in name only. (Mostly.) She lives in Columbus, Ohio because why anything. Also, she wants to write the Black Widow movie and feels like if she just keeps telling people, eventually she will be allowed to do it. She has a Twitter and a Tumblr, both of which are pretty above average.

Grace has written 88 articles for us.

  1. Who does Morgan Page think he is, Olivia Newton John?! No actually I think this video is kind of adorable and also watching Tegan and Sara get twirled around by a big muscle-y dude was kind of amazing.

    Also also I freaking love watching good dancers. Mmm.
