“Pretender” (Video)

    The legend of Jean Noel continues. You may remember in Miike Snow’s “Paddling Out” video, a rather ordinary chap was abducted by human-alien children and had a face-lift-gone-wrong, leaving him looking like Rocky Dennis from Mask‘s slightly more approachable brother.

    In this new clip for “Pretender,” also off the Swedish dance-rockers’ sophomore LP, Happy to You, Jean finds himself at Los Angeles’ Hard Festival, and after being mocked by almost everyone in sight for his ugly mug, realizes that sneaking on stage (conveniently during Miike Snow’s set) and dancing your tits off is a pretty good way to cure the sorrows.

    Happy to You is out now on iTunes via Downtown Records/Universal Republic. [Noisey]
