Watch: So So Glos’ anti-Internet video for “Speakeasy”

    Brooklyn punks The So So Glos want to save us from the deathly grips of the Internet in their new video for Blowout standout “Speakeasy”. Directed by Chris Ella at San Francisco’s The Armory, the clip sees “one lonely cyber cop” — played emphatically by frontman Alex Levine – going to great (and often humorous) lengths to wake folks up from their “technology-induced catatonic states”.

    I, for one, support this act of vigilantism. Besides, who wants to see someone sloppily eating breakfast while attempting to stream a DIY porno? FYI, not every couple’s kinky web project is worth you sloshing milk into your mouth like a barbarian. PUT THE PHONE DOWN. It seems counterintuitive to ask you to watch the clip online, but ya know…

    The band has also announced a lengthy summer tour with Say Anything. Consult the full itinerary.
