Marnie Stern Fights For Your Love

Guitar-wielding hypermusician Marnie Stern takes on the world in the video for “Ruler,” which is part Rocky homage, part absurdist superwoman fantasy, and 100% “clip that is one of the few things that made me smile all day.” Cameos by Upper East Side butchers, flaunting of dogwalking (dog-jogging?) skills, and rubber chickens in peril all add up to a ridiculously fun addition to the pantheon of “taking to the streets of New York City” videos that previously included the Go! Team’s Pac-Mantastic “Junior Kickstart,” the end of Ray Parker Jr.’s video for “Ghostbusters,” and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s “Flavor.” [Pitchfork.TV]
