'Kicking & Screaming' is the latest track from Oh My!, the parrot-sending, Example-approved girl duo currently doing all the things new pop acts do to drum up interest. (See also Six D, except Oh My! haven't been to the office to record any generic video content.)
As part of the drumming up process they've made a positioningtastic video for 'Kicking & Screaming'. It features various different types of authenticity.
'One member pushing another member around a car park while a non-threatening skinhead looks at it out of a car window' authenticity:
'Chair being thrown at a wall and hitting a dilapidated ceiling' authenticity:
'Sharing a sparsely decorated (and, we are led to believe, council estate-based) flat with an unconventionally attractive male' authenticity:
'Not looking at the camera' authenticity:
'Unimpressed crowd in working class boozer' authenticity:
'Nike bought the company in 2003 but never mind' authenticity:
'Still not looking at the camera in a deliberately low-lit scene depicting a piggyback down a country footpath (NB the countryside is quite different to a council estate — there are two sides to this band just like there are two members do you see), the piggyback itself highlighting how the band is a) fun but b) not so fun they smile too much' authenticity:
'Finding stuff to do during the day due to not having jobs' authenticity:
'Standing in front of a moody fire' authenticity:
'Throwing things onto the moody fire in front of a council estate' authenticity:
'Sitting together in a sort of "it's just us two against the world"-type anti-authority-esque' authenticity:
That's a whole lot of authenticity.
