Stupid Pet Tricks? This one’s a winner

“Stupid Pet Tricks” used to be a feature on the Letterman show and may still be. I don’t think “stupid” is really the right word, but sometimes, there are things that our pets do that are so unexpected, so delightful… and maybe slightly disturbing — that the SPT moniker seems to be the only appropriate blanket term.

This is not a music video. But it is a very clever promo video by the band Dead Man’s Bones, who have gotten fascinatingly mixed reviews. In my opinion, they are a more-than-decent band, with a particular and odd sensibility. I’m not sure that I love them, but I definitely like them.

This video is so simultaneously savvy and uncomplicated, completely devoid of production values. And as I said, it’s not a music video.

Their music aside, this video shows that Dead Man’s Bones have plenty of mirth and ingenuity.
