Lisa Hannigan performs "Knots" on the ukulele

[Video Link] Lisa Hannigan performs "Knots" on the ukulele. (Thanks, @funnelbc!)


    1. That was supposed to be a ‘joke’?

       I could swear you were just sexualizing a woman, even though she is PLAYING A FRACKING UKELELE.


      1. Actually, I think he was sexualizing the paint. My own reaction was similar, but with an overriding sense of “they can’t REALLY be trying for that imagery can they?”

  1. A combination of fetishes that almost seems designed to make the front page of BoingBoing. But I’m actually really glad for that; despite the fantastic but distracting video, the music is really good – sort of Neko Casey/Cat Powery (but more upbeat). $8 for the album at Amazon – I’m buying it.

  2. I watched a little while, trying to figure out what that thing at the bottom of the screen was – it looked like she was being sexually assaulted by a muppet.  I watched some more, and realized it was a hand.  I watched even more, and realized that she was apparently being sexually assaulted by a *whole bunch* of muppets.  

  3. I’d kind of like to hear the live take on that video, just to hear how well she kept up while being drowned in paint.

    Also, not enough banana.

  4. Very cool video indeed. BTW Mark, where has that lovely chanteuse Clara Belle got to? I see that many of her songs and videos have been subject to take-down notices and she no longer appears to have a web site. If memory served me correctly she was on the cusp of releasing an album.

  5. I’d like to buy this directly from her site but I can’t because “This product is not available in your region.” Classic.   

      1. It looked to me like the stuff going on her skirt was spraypaint. The stuff on her upper body was “squirt paint” as you say. (to coin a phrase).

  6. I’d guess they were using some sort of vibrant food colouring mixed with something like custard to give it body. Great fun, and I did like her singing too!

  7. I especially like the way the ukelele kept playing while she wiped the goop out of her eyes.

    Not everybody can do that.

  8. The spray-paint hands were linked to a spray-ish sound in the soundtrack… somebody playing a cymbal with a brush, I think?… Anyway, that’s why they were there. The other paint things were not quite so, er, closely linked with particular sounds. I think.

  9. How hard is it to get paint out of hair? The impression I get is that it’s quite difficult. And that’s a lot of paint.
