Videodrone: The Pierces Are Far From Boring

Feb 22nd, 2007 // 7 Comments

Our thanks to the anonymous chart-tackler who steered us toward this video from the Pierces–because, frankly, we we’d pretty much ignored everything they’d done up until this point. But the slinky “Boring” is a cold-stared delight, one that’s sure to spawn a few dance remixes, not to mention a so-so SNL parody featuring Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler.

    isn’t it a parody already?

    Isn’t that Kids Meal of Blue States Lose non-fame at the 1:03 remaining mark and on the right end of the couch in the group scenes? Good to see that he’s moved up in the world. I expect the next rank he’ll hit on the hiptard food chain will be in print.

    Was that Dana Carvey as Garth in the background?

    So much attraction, so much revulsion. Mostly revulsion, though.

    I can totally see Albert Hammond kissing the top of her head, saying, “Yeah yeah baby, sure, it’s great. Now let’s get naked and play Wii Bowling.”

    I like it. There’s something inherently Shirley Manson about it, only with a Jo from Housewives of Orange County singing half. I await a mashup with “I Could Never Be Your Woman” by White Town.

    “Ne’er Be Yerr Woman,” chides Shirl.

    It’s almost like a more grown-up, hotter version of taTU. Which after initial interest peaks will, of course, suck.

    Lyrics:

    “Saturday night/
    Look alright/
    We’re going out/
    Boring”

    And with that, my interest disappears…
