I don't think any video has ever screamed Wicked Guilty Pleasure more than this one. Young woman with braces and a lollypop in a short dress jumping up in the air to show off her underpants? Check. Angry looking man in a dress? Check. Gratuitous shirtless men? Check. Seemingly random video location - in a quarry? Check. Lyrics that exhibit only a passing fluency in English? Check.
Swedish band Whale released this song a whole year ahead of their debut album, and the video was a doozy. The sound was both poppy and grungy, making for an infectious combination and an unforgettable song, even without the video.
By the way, Cia Berg, the lead vocalist/young woman in question, was in her early 30s when this video was filmed. She just looked young, thanks to good genes. And braces.
