We all accept that Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Your Type' is one of the most incredible pieces of music the world has ever known. That is fact.
But what we didn't know — until now — is what the video would look like.
Did we dare to dream that Jeppo wouldn't fuck it all up with a bad video? 1
Did we find it within ourselves to hope that CRJ would pay tribute to the otherworldly sadface splendour of 'Your Type', the most important unrequitedlovebanger of the 21st Century, by delivering a video that ramped up the desolate glory of the song with an appropriately melancholic video?
Did it seem within the realms of possibility that the record label of Carly 'Rae' Rae Jeppo McJepsen would grasp the fact that a song whose importance and full-force pop power will outlive us all deserves a video that echoes the futility of hopeless romance in visuals that include neon signs, ie the best type of signs?
WELL IT HAS HAPPENED.
Sadness. Neon lights. The comfort of strangers. Solace in song.
A perfect video for a perfect single.
Not being funny but the videos so far from this 'era' have been slightly lacking.↩
