Swedish electro band Teddybears might make fun, dance-y music now, but did you know that they used to be a scary grindcore band? It's true! They've changed quite a lot since then, but their abiding love of horror imagery comes through in the video for their new song "Cho Cha." (You can Google that Spanish slang term yourself.)
Although both The B-52s and Cee Lo Green are featured on the track, neither appears in the video, per se. But Cee Lo voices a teddy bear puppet that is later used by the video's villain as a super creepy tool with which to taunt the young woman he is stalking. Um, that's kinda rude, Cee. Also in the video? The guy who stalked Tiffany and was featured in the documentary "I Think We're Alone Now." Seriously.
After invading her home and tying her up, the puppet-wielding predator puts the woman in a steampunk contraption, which turns her into some sort of cat monster. (Get it? Cat, as in pussycat, as in... [bleep].) She then bites off his head, and a teddy bear head grows in its place. And suddenly they are... in love? It's all very confusing, and mildly unsettling, but also entertaining if you're into cosplay or weird things or fun. One thing's for certain: Teddybears' imagination is definitely unique.
