There are two ways, and only two ways, to interpret what you’re about to see:
1. “Aw. Musicians Jonathan and Ivory are breaking up. That sucks, but it’s cool that they found a unique way of doing so: by writing a song about it, and in lieu of telling all their friends individually about their split, which is the worst, they filmed a music video together. If happy people can exploit their wedding proposals by putting them on YouTube, why can’t sad people do the same? Also, the song’s goddamn catchy.”
2. HIPSTER NONSENSE GARBAGE WHITE PEOPLE ARCADE FIRE HUMMUS HUMMUS HUMMUS
Despite my usual cynical bastard self, I was first charmed, then saddened by the video, so clearly, I’m in category one. Then again, I also kind of like (500) Days of Summer, so there you go. Judge for yourself.
