Watch: Mitski shares ridiculously gory ‘Happy’ video

Mitski shares ridiculously gory ‘Happy’ video

A tale of broken, tragic domesticity takes one hell of a turn.

There’s a striking shock factor on Mitski’s new album, ‘Puberty 2’. Whether it’s a heart-stopping lyric or the thunderous guitars on ‘Your Best American Girl’, the record’s best moments are designed to provoke.

This ethos gets taken to an extreme on a new Maegan Houang-directed video for ‘Happy’. Initially, this looks like being a tragic tale of ‘50s housewife being betrayed by a wandering husband. But there’s a twist. And if there’s one direct comparison to make, it’d be with the end of SNL’s recent ‘Farewell Mr. Bunting’ skit

Prepare for gore and prepare to be shocked. It’s amazing.
