Handsome Furs' zombie kiss: sexy?
Posted by Andrew Matson
This video, for "I'm Confused" by minimalist electro-rock duo Handsome Furs, just came to my attention. It tells a zombie terror-love story.
Handsome Furs is real-life husband and wife Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry, and in the video, Boeckner turns into a zombie. Perry is aghast as black-eyed Boeckner stalks her. Things are quite scary when he pins her to a low-lying park bench, half-mounts, and does a slow-motion face-plunge. Then it gets gross, and, if you're a little twisted, funny.
You can still buy tickets for the Furs' concert Friday at Neumo's. I'm interviewing one or both members today at noon. Can't wait!
The question is, grossness and humor aside, is the kiss sexy? What do you think?
I say sexy. Dead sexy. Ahahahahaha. Ha.
