I'm doing better than anybody else

Dear reader, you are in for a treat today. Considering that it is Friday, I suppose that is entirely appropriate. Today's video is from a band called TEEN from Brooklyn New York. They've managed to create the perfect montage for their haunting track "better" by using clips from some 80's bicycle dancing flick staring Kevin Bacon. Take a look, become obsessed, and then watch again.

Teen BETTER from FAR EYE on Vimeo.

I think this video/song is the perfect way to encapsulate today's 20 something culture. It takes something from the past, and by super imposing a compensatory lens (in this case, music), somehow makes it more suitable now than in the time it was originally created. A bunch of guys dancing on bicycles could only be cool in 1986 and 2011, and no time in between.

Also, who knew Kevin Bacon was so... hot.?
