Reptile Youth - "Shooting Up Sunshine"
Reptile Youth has a new video out for their song, "Shooting Up Sunshine," which is about that overwhelming feeling of happiness you sometimes get, where you feel literally drugged with joy.
Apparently this also causes you to rub your butt seductively against ugly cars, as model Alyona Shishmarova does in this video. I guess that is supposed to be 'sexy.' Just makes me feel vaguely ill every time the camera focuses on her butt. Can't we move past objectifying women in music videos? She's not even in the band. She is lip-syncing to a male singer's voice. I do not understand. The song is fun, but it's really ruined by the existence of this video.
