You’re going to have to excuse me if my thinking is a bit incoherent right now. Between my DVR exploding on Monday night and some issues with my laptop on Tuesday, I’ve only had about 4 hours of sleep over the past two days and, as I sit here typing this, I am on the verge of passing out. On the plus side, I may be exhausted but at least everything seems to be working now. The laptop is working fine. The new DVR has arrived. My thumb — which I slightly burned when, while unplugging the DVR, I accidentally grabbed the metal part of the plug, despite the fact that there was an actual plume of smoke rising up off of it — has finally stopped throbbing and is back to being it’s wonderful self. Now, I just need to get some sleep and hopefully, when I wake up, my heart will no longer be racing and my thoughts will be much more coherent.
Fortunately, there’s a solution for when you’re trying to write about a music video but your brain is screaming at you to fall asleep. You can just pick something from She & Him! She & Him, of course, are Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. Both their music and their videos tend to be so wonderful and endearing that they can pretty much speak for themselves.
This video was directed by Peyton Reed. Today, of course, Reed is probably best known for directing the Ant-Man films. When this video was shot, he was best known for directing the original Bring It On. As such, it’s not surprising to see him selected to bring this video’s high school world to life.
Enjoy and good night!
