Best Coast had one of my favorite albums last year and they’ve already made my favorite music video of 2011. The new video for their single “Crazy for You” is everywhere online this morning, and while the catchy tune probably doesn’t hurt, I’m going to guess that it’s the feline stars that are pushing it over the top. This thing is two calicos short of an episode of Hoarders.
The Internet loves cats you guys. Cats doing cute things, cats doing funny things, cats doing things that are usually done by humans (like using an iPad or directing a hipster music video.) The secret to Internet success hasn’t been a secret for some time now.
See, Lady Gaga? It’s not all about big-budget production. And Katy Perry? You never had to make your breasts ejaculate whipped topping on to the eyes of teenage America. You ladies just needed to stack some cats on top of each other and get your hair blown out real cute.

Ok, I know “everyone we cared about in the 80′s and 90′s” is a pretty large group, and granted, there is not a single Spice Girl in the video, but it’s still a solid representation. Jason Alexander. Ricki Lake. Norm from Cheers, Theo from The Cosby Show. Carlton from Fresh Prince breaks it down. What’s that? Those names are enough for your highfalutin tastes? Fair enough. What if I told you that Glenn Close and Right Said Fred are also involved? Still not enough? Fine. SMFG is there. That’s right, Steve Motherfucking Guttenberg. And I defy you to name someone more important.
But really, I defy you. I’m not saying that Steve Guttenberg was the most influential actor of the 80′s and 90′s (even though in a different, very correct sense I am definitely saying that), I’m just wondering what your favorite appearance in the video was. I care about what you care about, and that’s why our relationship works.

A teaser for Rihanna’s Rockstar video came out yesterday. It’s going to be impossible for her to top Rude Boy (from styling to the actual song, it’s one of my favorite things ever) and to be honest, I think this song kind of sucks, but Rihanna knows when to pull out the big guns… or her boobs. Whatever. Check out the 0:23 mark. It’s SFW, technically. I think. I don’t know, I haven’t worked in a real office in four years.
What do you think of Rihanna’s look and Rockstar?

The first still from Lady Gaga’s Alejandro video shoot has leaked and it looks like she’s busy working on yet another visual spectacle. It feels odd to see that much of her face, though. You know? When was the last time Lady Gaga showed her entire face? She’s always got on sunglasses or some sort of batshit accessory glued to her head.
Personally I’m thinking that after the “Telephone” video she really should have just gone with something simple, but whatever.
