Wavves are back with another new video from their solid new LP You’re Welcome, this time for the song “Stupid in Love.” The video features a gamer who gets duped into pursuing an online relationship with a techie-looking avatar with brilliant-colored pink hair. As he plays an old-school video game on his computer, he receives a message from the “girl” and strikes up a conversation. In between talking to friends about his lack of luck in love, he checks his computer for messages from the pink-haired girl. Turns out the humans behind the avatar are in fact a couple who steal his credit card info when he tries to buy a train ticket for his online lover. The video ends with the catfishers partying and boozing it up, proclaiming “God Bless American Teenagers!” while our protagonist is left alone, holding a bouquet of flowers at a train station.
The video is directed by Rocco Rivetti.
