There is no sensation more awkward than the feeling of being a third wheel. Whether it’s with a group of friends or with a couple, feeling as though you are merely tagging along with two people is the worst. Singer Maggie Lindemann clearly feels that way, since she spends most of her new video laying waste to the concept.
On Wednesday (May 29), Lindemann released a new video for her song “Friends Go,” which she packaged as its own short film, appropriately titled “Death by Third Wheel.” Throughout the clip, Lindemann drives down a dusty road in a pink convertible with a couple, who continue to ignore her as they make jokes, make out and cuddle with one another.
Eventually, Lindemann decides to take out her frustrations over the situation on the car, wrecking it over and over again throughout the video by crashing it, pushing it off a cliff and even setting it on fire. “They say that I'm crazy, they took you away/ Now I'm all by myself/ Where did all my friends go?” the singer croons as the convertible smolders in the background.
