Fergie is a cold stoner murderer in Love is Blind stop-motion video
Every week, a slew of new music videos hit the web. Watching them at your desk isn’t time stealing because you deserve it; See it as a nice reward for surviving another week of work. But what if you don’t have time to watch all of the videos – maybe you have a deadline, a hungry pet, or other adult concerns. In consideration of your schedule, Lizzie and Kaitlyn bring you a series called A video. Each week we’ll tell you “a video” you need to watch, why, and for how long.
Video of the week: “Love is Blind” by Fergie
Lizzie: This week’s pick joins a small but strong group of former One Video winners who have managed to clinch the top spot despite of the song attached to their video. This group includes MattyBRaps, Ansel Elgort and Taylor Swift – a trio that will likely never be compared again. “Love is Blind”, a single from Fergie’s recent album double dutch, sounds like a Gwen Stefani song when she was friends with all of the Sublime kids. She pronounces “bitches” like trying to pass herself off as a high person, but then she got an air bubble down her throat.
Is pop-reggae a good look for Fergie? No. Does the music video for the pop-reggae song sound good? This is why we are here.
Kaitlyn: This week’s One video is a stop-motion animation made by a whole team of people less known than Fergie but who honestly do a more impressive job in this particular situation. Host Gary Cureton directed episodes of Morph and created characters for Wallace and Gromit and Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. He animated a bunch of fake Barbie dolls that art director Emily Suvanvej (and her team of six!) Made for this video of Fergie, all of which have faces and joints that are way more expressive than you might expect. ever wanted from a doll in real life. .
Who is Fergie?
Lizzie: Considering her recent music production, Fergie is probably wondering the same thing right now. Here are some facts about Fergie, in the words of her most recent album:
- Not thirsty, just hungry
- I must be telepath
- The fever is growing inside that shell you call a body
- I have blisters under the bandage on my life
- I slept with the demon every night in my room
Kaitlyn: I think you probably know who Fergie is, or at least you know the song “Fergalicious” and have a eureka moment right now, like “So it’s where does the word ‘fergalicious’ come from. Huh. ”In the video for“ Love is Blind, ”it’s not clear if a doll who enjoys hanging out by her pool, murdering her lovers, and keeping her house tidy is meant to be an avatar for Fergie herself. , but the lyrics are sung, in the first person, and we can interpret things as we want.
What is special about “Love is Blind” by Fergie:
Lizzie: The best part of this video is dozens of little dollhouse accessories scattered around the generic Barbie Dream House brand. There’s a raw steak and a bunch of little knives and a blunt and a pizza box and a flamingo floatie and a fluffy pink robe. The video also has a script. I kept getting distracted by the adorable details. And the murder.
Kaitlyn: The peculiarity of “Love is Blind” is that the title of the song is incorrect. Love is not blind; love is watching closely, and love has an incredible purpose.
Plus, I think the pink pool raft the doll murderer hangs out in during her downtime between murders is probably a reference to the one Rihanna has in the “Bitch Better Have My Money” video. You can’t really go wrong with a Rihanna reference, but not enough clips have it.
How long should everyone watch Fergie’s “Love is Blind”:
Lizzie: The. Whole. Time.
Kaitlyn: This one depends on your mood. The answer is “all the time,” if you agree with the ruthless antiheroines and Pepto-Bismol-inspired violence today. Otherwise, I would suggest looking only at the pieces that involve a pink raft, a good meal, or a quiet awakening. These times occur from 0:01 to 0:31; 1:08 to 1:10; 1:16 to 1:50; 3:05 am to 3:08 am; 3:13 to 3:18; and 4:05 at the end.
