Don't worry, they were going to tear the house down anyway. Icky Blossoms' video for "Perfect Vision" captures a couple pummeling sheetrock, swinging from a chandelier and setting fire to the bed, among other destructive acts. To answer questions within the song, it's neither raining nor snowing: The forecast calls for heavy precipitation of glass shards.
The band says their music videos exist within the same universe, but it's easy to break yet another wall, the fourth, and wonder who allowed this ravaging to take place in their abode. Turns out it was Habitat for Humanity, and the two characters, with various substances in their bloodstream, did a good deal of work to aid the already planned demolition.
So here's hoping you weren't eyeing the microwave because it might have trouble turning on. "We were dealing with a 6-1/2-minute long song," the band says. "We had to keep things interesting."
