The Muffs Release Music Video for ‘Weird Boy Next Door’

Subscribe to on

In July, Los Angeles-based rock trio the Muffs released ‘Whoop Dee Doo,’ their sixth studio record and first in a decade. Featuring a familiar punk pop sound as past albums, the new LP was released on the Calif. indie label Burger Records. As if the new record wasn’t enough reason to get excited, the Muffs have unveiled the first music video from ‘Whoop Dee Doo’ — and only the seventh of their career.

Opening track ‘Weird Boy Next Door’ is one of the catchiest tunes on ‘Whoop Dee Doo,’ so it only makes sense the music video is equally entertaining. The three bandmates all share a house in the video and live next door to, well, a weird boy who likes to lick lollipops in odd ways and attempt magic on giant bunnies. Erik Charles Nielsen — also known as Garrett Lambert from ‘Community‘ — stars as the peculiar neighbor and does a great job living up to the lyrics of the song.

“I’ve never had more fun shooting a video,” Muffs frontwoman Kim Shattuck tells Rolling Stone. Helping keep things fun and sitting in the director’s chair for the music video is Sara Radle, a musician who played with the Rentals for a few years and is currently working on her first feature-length screenplay.

The Muffs’ latest record, ‘Whoop Dee Doo,’ is available now wherever fine music is sold. Get your hands on the album here.
