Video of The Day #343: The Fresh & Onlys

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

A wise man once said that no one expects the Spanish Inquisition. In other words, you should expect the unexpected (and watch Monty Python). That's a sentiment that certainly applies to the video for The Fresh & Onlys' "Impossible Man." What you get isn't what you'd expect after the initial few seconds. The song itself, too, is darker than you might suspect upon hearing the bursts of fizzy, psych-candy pop. After all, how cheerful can a song that took inspiration from Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man be? Both song and video are worth plenty of eye and ear time, so don't delay.
