California-based pop duo More Giraffes (Mark Hadley and Keeley Bumford) has debuted a colorful, fun video for their third single “Not Cool,” premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Oct. 8).
Directed by Colin West McDonald, the visual follows a girl in the process of getting over a breakup, with more emphasis on topics such as humor, fun and forgiveness than heartbreak. While she initially gives up on love, her urge to forgive becomes stronger than her willingness to spend another night in her dinosaur onesie, ?eating takeout. The song’s upbeat melody and catchy lyrics compliment the video’s bright colors and overall humorous tone.
“Dinosaurs are a theme for us, the mark of an antihero, and so we used dinosaur onesies as a metaphor for being down in the dumps and wearing your depression on your sleeve in this video,” More Giraffes tells Billboard. “The main character thinks she’s alone, but actually, we’re all dinosaurs.”
“Not Cool” will be included on More Giraffes’ upcoming EP, which is due to be released later this year.
