Dr. Dog–Fool’s Life

In music, music video on July 16, 2007 at 5:30 pm

I’m not going to claim some long history with Dr. Dog, but I was briefly familiar with their record label, Park The Van Records in New Orleans. I reviewed a release by Carter Tanton, and Antigravity was one of the first to boast of Philly’s The Teeth and the rapidly-becoming famous Dr. Dog. Apparently Park The Van left N.O. after Hurricane Katrina (like myself) for Pennsylvania (not like myself).

Here is the actual music video for “Fool’s Life” by Dr. Dog as filmed/produced by Rive Video.

Bask in the joys of grainy 60s-like film quality and gorillas riding bikes! Is this a deeper commentary on the fallacies of evolution? Or the mental state of children, and how they actually are more representative of stupid monkeys rather than humans? Or does it mock animated “crash” sequences in a sly jab at Batman and its campiness? Or does it just represent a band having a good time with one of their songs?
