If you’ve been following my blog (don’t blame ya if you haven’t), you may have gathered from previous Videos of the Week that I have a weakness for the following:
- Ridiculously simplistic and/or low-budget videos (although the occasional cinematic masterpiece-type vid is nice, too).
- Lesser-known videos and/or bands.
- Children’s toys.
In keeping with these trends, I give you “Bad Boyfriend” by California queercore band Pansy Division. The video seems to have been filmed on a budget of no more than $2 (though I doubt if it even cost that much) and stars an adorable but angsty polar bear plushie (and one that seems to have been through the wear and tear that tells of a long lifetime of love from its owner. This goes for all the polar bear’s friends as well). My personal favorite part of the video is the guitar solo, a close second being the trumpets coming in at the end. And by the way, I’m almost certain I own, or at least used to own, a dolphin just like the one used in this video. Enjoy.
