In the "Real Thing" music video, tUnE-yArDs' Merrill Garbus expertly plays an expressive floating head. And the colorful, kaleidoscope video pits her against an army of robot mannequins and packing peanuts.
The video's director, Tom Jobbins said in a press release:
"Hearing the song made me think of bright patterns and dancing hands! With these initial thoughts in my mind and the song on repeat I envisaged a madcap story about three plastic sisters and an all-singing all-dancing Merrill. It's a brash and brilliant song and I wanted to match that with the visuals. Merging animation and live action allowed us to create different spaces and bring in lots of visual treats. Merrill was great from beginning to end. Her advice was always to go weirder and wilder, and I think her brilliant performance shows just that."Watch the wild and weird video, above.
