    Dude, I love MGMT, but this video is only OK.

    Dude, that video is crazy… On the one hand it reminds me of this aerobics show I used to watch on Sunday mornings. There were three people doing their aerobic dance, each on a different level. This totally reminded me of that. It also reminded me of the time I was forced to choreograph a musical for 4th graders in the musical style of Michael Jackson/era of the sparkly glove, etc. It was every bit as horrifiying as this post implies.

    Yeah, I’m 34 and my girlfriend of about the same age calls me ‘dude’ all of the time.

    It’s more of just an exclamation/interjection than a pronoun most of the time, though, like “Hey – it’s really trippy.” (replace ‘hey’ with ‘dude’)

    We Californians actually do say ‘dude’, ‘man’, ‘totally’ and ‘rad’ as much as you think. It’s just how it is. Every region has it’s dialects.

    Oh, and cool vid. I like MGMT.

    DUDE!!! this is great! Mr. Wareheim has done some great videos aside from Tim and Eric. Don’t get me wrong, I love T&E.

    #1 nice. :)

    there’s something win about awkward people dancing in low budget music videos. like OK Go, all of the fan made daft punk vids and the Star Wars kid.

    This is what the future was ~supposed~ to look like!

    Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparklemotion. This was not one of those times.

    “Just hose it off, dummy!”

  13. yousaidwhatnah says:

    Have you seen the one Eric did for the Flying Lotus song “Parisian Goldfish?” It’s great! BUT it is pretty much NSFW.

    Reminds me of the mini pops. Nice coffee grinder move though.

    Brilliant. Wareheim never lets me down!

    If you’re into the whole ‘outsider art/wtf’ aesthetic, I’d recommend anything directed by Scarlet O’Hara Lee Jenkins. Pretty solid stuff.

    Does your wife really call you “dude”? What is she, 17?

  17. usonia says:

    My wife calls me dude.
    Then again, my wife is a) Californian and b) a dude himself (and he hates it when I refer to him as the wife. But one of us HAS to be the wife, right?).

    Good video, OK song -though my wife would give me the evil eye if she caught me watching it. If it isn’t “classic rock” and wasn’t recorded in the late 60′s, 70′s or 80′s it isn’t music to her.

    I lived in San Diego, CA for a little over a year in the late 80′s and to my horror, started calling people dude. That part of CA is beautiful and I have a lot of great memories from those days. The best was probably the night me and my buds walked all night down Mission Beach with Jimi Hendrix blasting out from out boom box. I was 20 – We were drunk – Good times.

    And @#6 – We folks on the west coast call everyone dude. I’m 36 and I say it all the time. Blame surfer culture.

    Hang 10.
