I love this silly fun new Robyn video. And thanks to Towleroad, I now know The Lonely Island too. ‘Comedy hip hop’. Hilarious. I’ve watched more of their videos and they are really funny. Go Kindergarten is from their latest album, The Wack Album.
Robyn’s deadpan delivery of her lines are cute. She’s always a lot of fun to watch. In the shots where she’s standing in front of the brainwashing spiral thing, she makes me think ‘spawn of Elton John‘ haha. A long-lost daughter. She just reminds me of him all of a sudden for some reason.
And as a nice bonus this video even features Paul Rudd, always a welcome sight.
It’s a nice catchy song in itself even if it comes with generic lyrics, but the satire of ridiculous lyrics in some songs and the influence some performers have over their fans, is what makes it so entertaining. In the video, this satire is illustrated by club goers being hypnotized into doing some crazy and dumb dance moves.
“Yeah, you know, some of it might seem strange /
But don’t think, just obey /
Let the music play, ’cause we put it in the song /
So do everything that we say”
