Watch: Real Estate’s “Crime”, an early candidate for Video of the Year

    It’s only April 15th, but we just may have a runaway favorite for music video of the year. Today, Real Estate has shared the video for “Crime”, a very meta, very hilarious piece of comedy directed by fellow New Jersey great Tom Scharpling. Without giving too much away, Scharpling is in a money bind, so he put the video’s concept for sale. The result is part zombie film, part infomercial, all tied together in a wholesome little bow, with a special cameo from the Westboro Baptist Church. Watch below.

    “Crime” is taken from Real Estate’s latest album, Atlas. For more, revisit their recent appearance on Letterman and read Dan Caffrey’s interview with guitarist Martin Courtney.
