Yo La Tengo’s take on “Friday I’m In Love” lilts along, but the video hits a lot harder than the song.
I don’t know that the word “violent” has ever been used to describe anything associated with the legendary Hoboken indie rockers, but this video is precisely that, although the violence is presented in a pretty hilarious manner. Take a look, then pick up YLT’s first album of cover songs in 25 years, ‘Stuff Like That There,’ out on August 28.
Want some more quirky hilarity? Jump back to Yo La Tengo’s video for 1997’s “Sugarcube” and see if you can pick out the cameos.
