Yeah Yeah Yeahs, ‘Mosquito’ – New Video
Subscribe to Diffuser.fm on
Considering the refrain in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ ‘Mosquito’ is “Mosquito, mosquito, mosquito… he’ll suck your blood,” can we really be surprised at the outcome of their brand-new video for the title track off their 2013 album? The mildly gross clip is a close-up on a mosquito sucking blood from a boy’s hand. The kid can be seen in a thumbnail in the bottom-right corner, and he’s pretty nonplussed and most likely unaware of what this mosquito looks like — lucky him. As the video progresses, the mosquito grows until it turns downright psychedelic, transforming into rainbow colors. Spoiler alert: The boy squashes the trippy mosquito.
If we haven’t ruined the video for you and you didn’t just eat breakfast, go ahead and check out the Shimbe Shim-directed clip above.
