Tegan and Sara have been on a video-making marathon, as they produce videos for every single song off their latest album, Love You to Death, and even one for their original song for The Intervention. (We can’t even keep up, so don’t miss the video for “White Knuckles,” released earlier this month.)
The duo have highlighted well known and lesser known talents from across the industry, collbaorating with Clea DuVall, putting young queer and trans performers in the spotlight, and creating a bizarre and delightful juxtaposition featuring Instagram-famous dogs.
The Quin twins released their video for their fast-paced listen-while-you’re-driving-on-the-highway-with-your-boo-on-your-mind single “Stop Desire” on Facebook this morning. Director Allister Ann has the two do some errands at otherwise-mundane spaces — the laundromat, the post office, the market — where they are bombarded by innuendo in everything from envelope-licking to ears of corn. The result is very funny and very sexy. Tegan and Sara maintain deadpan faces throughout, seemingly unfazed by the lipstick applications, cat underwear, and bulbous fruits surrounding them.
Cool alt musician Reggie Watts and a famous cat named Shrampton are also there.
Check it out on Facebook!
omg thank u
The last minute made me so U N C O M F O R T A B L E
But I really loved the wardrobe and video lighting!
1. T&S started growing out their hair the same time I coincidentally started growing out my hair and I feel like we’re all having a moment together (the moment being not exceptionally feminine women having long hair)
2. Did anyone else somehow get a “But I’m a Cheerleader” vibe from this video?
I think it’s the use of color! And the whole gay thing.
Most of these were more silly than sexy, but let’s face it, the fig is effective.
Is anyone else having issues loading the video past the first 10 seconds or so? :(
Its on their Youtube channel too, if you can’t view it here.
Innuendo-Laden Fruit is a great party theme.
I would totally come.
