Nerves Junior – “Kale” Music Video

I’m into this mopey video full of nonchalant creepers. In this video for “Kale” (which populates the YouTube “Suggestions” sidebar with many a tutorial on the many ways to properly prepare kale), Nerves Junior are the perfect combination of somewhat present and really lethargic. As attractive women climb all over the band members, coyly distracting them from playing their instruments, the men return their advances with apathy, just as fascinated with continuing to play music as they are with paying attention to the women kissing their faces. It’s this kind of lack of concern that unfortunately works in many a dating game, and oh yeah, it works for Nerves Junior in their brand of music, too. A win-win, really, for the band.
