Chromeo continues on their path toward pop-world adoration and domination with this addition to their long track record of compelling music videos. “Hot Mess”, the latest video for their Atlantic Records debut album, “Business Casual”, is a hilarious and lascivious narrative starring Dave and Pee as the last two male cops in an all female precinct that is highly aestheticized, beautifully shot, reminiscent of 70s French erotic cinema but with an American, Police Academy twist (synchronized swimming, policewoman dance routines, bodybuilders, aerial crane shots, dozens of breathtaking models). Most importantly it finally answers the question “what do Dave-1 and P-Thugg look like shirtless?” It’s unabashedly retro yet absurdly modern…it’s all that you’ve come to expect from a Chromeo video.
After countless sold out shows, critcial praise, an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman, and the announcement of a large tour early next year, Chromeo is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down.
Here we also have the remix to the track featuring La Roux. What are your thoughts on the song and the remix?
