!!!, "Jamie, My Intentions Are Bass"

Director: Saman Keshavarz


Music Video |  USA |  2010 |  ProRes Quicktime |  5 MIN


In this music video for !!! band members are seen sporting handlebar mustaches and tacky '70s garb to synchronized dancing and high-fives, it's impossible to look away from this video for fear of missing something amazing. With quick moving shots between colorful sets, the mesmerizing cinematography intrigues the viewer as to what is coming next.

On top of that, the video adds some pretty blatant innuendo to Nic Offer's lyrics, with growing flowers being inserted into vases and a bit of extreme pelvic thrusting. Check out the funny and captivating video below.
