  • it makes me think of The Day of the Locust for some reason

  • The editing on this is pretty killer.

  • agreed, kudos to the editor

  • Alan. from The Hangover

    I was almost sold.. till he booted that dog with no real story to it.

    • i think it was supposed to look like it was attacking him, upon second viewing the dog looks a bit too friendly hahah

    • aga

      yeah, the same impression. how did they make this scene and what for? ;/

    • CB

      Apparently the band had no actual say in the creation of this music video and were really pissed of at their label and the director at the dog punching.

  • Grettle

    Cool clip.

    Have a peep at Tame Impala’s new album artwork, and the single artwork for Solitude Is Bliss is amazing also!

    yeah not keen on the animal abuse implication, especially when you see its saliva after he appears to punch the dog in the face. What the hell?

  • it really fits the song.

  • I love Tame Impala. They’re from my city and usually Australians pooh-pooh anyone from their own city but these guys are great.

  • Jona

    I think it looks like the dog was trying to hump him, so no reason for hitting…
    cool song though, and otherwise amazing clip!

  • Morgan

    I have definitely had a dream very similar to this one before. Only the dog punched me.

  • Dylan

    He didn’t really punch a dog, and the song is about solitude and anger. I don’t understand why people are so hung up on that. It’s supposed to be visually shocking.

  • mela

    Australian’s hardly poo-pooh their surrounding music artists, it’s there to be poo-poohed when the talent is hardly commended. Quality to taste my friends.
