Chris Counts Down Buzzworthy’s Top 5 Videos Of The Year — Number 2: Handsome Furs, ‘I’m Confused’

+ Handsome Furs, “I’m Confused”


Director Scott Coffey’s clip for the Handsome Furs’ lo-fi/new-wave rave up (taken from their awesome album, Face Control) is basically Night Of The Living Dead Cool Kids. Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade) and Alexei Perry kick out the jams at a house party until a serious case of Zombie Flu hits the crowd. Then, well…you know how these things go; sooner or later, everyone’s stumbling around, spitting infected black grime at one another, and it all looks like a hipster version of “Thriller.”
