GRRRR. Jake hates hipsters as much as Jake loves sandwiches.
I normally don’t sign on for eight plus minute videos (#Kony2012 hysteria never stood a chance with me) but at the promise of Jake Gyllenhaal murdering hipsters I poured a big bowl of cereal and made an exception. A minute in and one fencing costume later I decided I would not be disappointed.
The Shoes’ “Time to Dance,” as described by the official video:
Combine the best band in France right now, acclaimed director Daniel Wolfe, production by Somesuch & Co, and one of the hottest young actors on the planet and you’re sure to get a banging filmclip.
We scored the world premiere of The Shoes newest video which features Jake Gyllenhaal as a disturbed killing machine who chases his victims up fire escapes, into back alleys, and through strip clubs before he violently slays them.
There’s definitely a distinct Donnie Darko meets American Psycho meets Taxi Driver meets French dance pop meets Brokeback Mountain vibe going on. And I think I’m correct in assuming the moral of the story is don’t dance like an entitled white person. Or Jake Gyllenhaal will kill you.
Full probably NSFW video after the jump. For me it’s much less listenable than Aubrey Plaza’s music video debut, but way higher on the comedy spectrum, so good luck there.
Insert “Gyllenaal was making hipster killing French dance pop videos before it was cool” line here.
