Video: Handsome Furs – “What About Us” (NSFW)

on July 07, 2011, 2:50pm

Scott Coffey is an actor/music video director who knows a thing or two about exciting visuals. For Wolf Parade’s “Yulia”, he told the story of cosmonauts in love, while the Handsome Furs“I’m Confused” got the zombie treatment. Now, for video for the Furs’ “What About Us”, off the recently released Sound Kapital, Coffey makes the already eye-catching even more alluring by taking a surreal look at intimacy through the lens of the relationship between band members/married couple Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry. It’s dark, it’s gritty, and all that sweating is perfectly natural.

As for his motivation for the spicy NSFW clip, Coffey told Stereogum, “We’re a nation of prudes conversely walled in pornography. I wanted to make the diametric opposite of porn. What is that? Intimacy. I think. Real feeling. We live in a world where that seems transgressive now. That’s really, ultimately, what this video and record is about to me. That’s fucked. Let’s fuck.” Yes, let’s.
