For a girl with an Alex Turner mouse pad at work, I have to say the struggle is real, but thank goddess I am not as psychotic as the crazed fan in the music video for “Snap Out Of It”. Many fans are commenting on the video that they think it’s an egotistical move on Alex Turner’s part…Instead, I think it’s hilarious.
Arctic Monkey have always had a great sense of humor with everything they do and I think this video proves that. The star of this music video is, stereotypically, a gorgeous model. When she comes out of the pool in the beginning of the video, she could be anyone’s dream girl. Then, we see her true colors. She is a psycho stalker of the band and her obsession with them, particularly Alex Turner, is pretty terrifying. Paired with the whimsical music and lyrics of “Snap Out Of It,” it’s clear that the band is getting a message across that they don’t get anyone liking or obsessing over them that much. With her crying and some of the faces she makes in the video, I couldn’t help but laugh the entire way through. Again, I don’t think it’s an egotistical move on Alex Turner’s part or the band as a whole. I think it’s hysterical! Hopefully you do too.
Check out the video below and make sure you see Arctic Monkeys play Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE this Friday. I will be there, dancing harder than the model at the end of this video.
