Don’t yell at me for posting two videos that have nothing to do with each other in the same post; I needed to get both of them done, and it was a timesaver. So, today, I give you ‘Umbrella’ by Rihanna, and ‘Elephant Gun’ by Beirut. You’ve probably seen pictures of the set of Elephant gun, and the video is every bit as bizarre as they would suggest; it features a mustachioed Zach Condon playing the song, while people dance around him in faux elephant noses. And of course, there’s the obligatory elephant gun. ‘Umbrella’ is one of the better pop songs I’ve heard this year, despite providing more proof that Jay-Z should have stayed in retirement. It’s a dark song, and the video compliments it well. Enjoy!
