Top Ten Things I Like About This Weeks’ Video Clip, “Telelelevision” By Super Whatevr
1. Superwhatevr are a band from Orange County, California, which is where I am also from. Represent.
2. This song is called “Telelelevision,” and watching Television is in my top three favorite things that I like to do! Yay!
3. On weekend mornings, we should get to watch cartoons, right? This clip is animated, so that’s like a cartoon. Win Close enough!
4. Musically, “Telelelevision” sounds like it could be a lost Pixies‘ song. I like The Pixies.
5. Also, back in the ’90s there was a one-hit wonder, post-Grunge band from California called The Flys, formed by a couple of brothers who were most famous for making sunglasses and surfing. I am pretty sure I interviewed them at one point. Anyway, their hit was called “Got You Where I want You,” and “Telelelevision” sort of reminds me of that song.
6. Pink is my favorite color, and this video features lots of pink, and various shades of pink, so I enjoy watching it, as it pleases my eyeballs.
7. The video was animated by Eat The Danger, who has done the videos for “Lisbon” by Wolf Alice and Courtney Barnett’s “Dead Fox.”
8. The fluid nature of the animation makes the video especially optimal for watching while you are high on any kind of even mildly psychedelic drug.
9. I like the part where the protagonist rides a big Rubber Duck.
10. “Telelelevision” can be found on Superwhatevr’s debut full-length, Never Nothing, out now via Hopeless Records. Enjoy!
