HAIM make three grown men cry in their video for “The Wire.”
We always had a feeling that L.A. sister act HAIM was a traveling trio of heartbreakers. I mean, you can’t be obscenely talented singers, exceptionally beautiful, and unnaturally good at fusing ’90s R&B with ’70s-era classic rock without stomping on a few hearts along the way, right? And just like we predicted, that’s exactly what Este, Danielle, and Alana do in their new video for “The Wire”: break hearts, rock out, and make grown men cry.
Watch HAIM’s “The Wire” video after the jump.
The latest single from their upcoming Days Are Gone disc (out Sept. 30), “The Wire” video features HAIM eye-rolling their way through one very long, breakup-y day. All three ladies have had enough of their boyfriends (hay, Jorma Taccone from The Lonely Island aka Booth Jonathan from “Girls”!), who, to be honest, kinda seem like total wimps; once the sisters cut their dudes loose, all three guys proceed to have full-on (but very funny) emotional breakdown.
Now, don’t get us wrong — HAIM don’t seem cold or inherently evil. It’s just that if a guy’s gonna cry on you post-breakup, it’s probably safe to assume that he was a crier before the breakup. And nobody likes to date a crier (unless you’re watching “Marley & Me,” and then it’s totally acceptable). I guess Booth Jonathan & Co. just weren’t strong enough to be HAIM’s men.
