Watch: Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ ‘Mosquito’ music video

05.07.13 4 years ago

One of your least favorite things about the summer months is the featured creature in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Mosquito” music video. The famed blood-sucker spends the clip doing as the song says.

The CGI winged nuisance also changes shape over the duration, taking on neon colors and getting greedy, chowing down on a little boy’s hand. Curiously, director Shimbe Shim shows the mosquito’s victim’s face in the lower right hand corner, making a display of him watching us and watching it, without the ability to do anything to warn him. The insect ultimately gets his, but it is a very uncomfortable time up until then.

Perhaps the wily song has the same initiative: to make the listener a little perturbed and slightly violent, a little raging weirdo among the other weirdos on the album that shares the same name as this track.

Whatever, just keep it away from me.
