There’s nothing I’d like more in my sad and pathetic life than to hate The Veronicas‘ new single “Lolita”, but I just can’t. I already begrudgingly gave the song a good review, and now I have to be nice about the official music video, which is pretty damn cool.
Think Resident Evil, but with aliens instead of zombies, and you’ll get the idea. The Veronicas just strut around the place looking as sexy as Claire Redfield and Jill Valentine while blasting some nasty space creatures with shotguns. In between the carnage, they splash around in a bathtub and pout behind a wind machine. It’s not exactly Citizen Kane, but it’s awesome for anybody who likes seeing hot girls shoot gross monsters.
The Veronicas will probably start giving interviews soon talking about how the alien is a metaphor for a bunch of pretentious crap and that they made an edgy music video that has never been done before and will probably be banned for being so bold and shocking and artistic and just way beyond the comprehension of mainstream audiences, but just tune out their puerile narcissistic blathering and enjoy “Lolita” for the fun radio-friendly banger that it is.
