First of all, I loved the music video for this song. The first time I saw the video, I was stuck in line for riding Bizzaro at Six Flags New England. In the heat with the music video playing at least twice while I was waiting, I didn’t actually mind seeing the video or even hearing the song twice in a 30 minute loop:
I mean there have been some other interesting tennis-related music videos (See Vampire Weekend with their “Giving Up the Gun” http://youtu.be/bccKotFwzoY video featuring the very yummy Jake Gyllenhaal and the decently okay Joe Jonas) but I think this one was weirdly not only the most accurate, but most fun to watch. Clearly after watching the music video though, I had no clue who Dragonette was.
