Matt and Kim’s ‘Lessons Learned’ Video

I got an email earlier today from a guy named Taylor about the new Matt & Kim video for the song Lessons Learned. I checked out the video, not really sure what to think cuz’ I still hadn’t heard their new album, Grand. As it turns out, both the song and the video are absolutely killer.

The video features Matt & Kim slowly stripping out of their clothes, eventually ending up buck naked through the streets of New York, in front of the MTV studios to be specific. I talked to the director of the video, who just happened to be the fellow who emailed me, and he said the whole thing was totally real. They were really naked, there were really cops there, only one part at the end might not be, haha…

Check it out, and be sure to check out Matt & Kim’s new album Grand as well.

    Cute. As a European I’m always bummed to see Americans so weirded out by nudity, but it wouldn’t improve it much in this case either.

    Love the ending.

    that was fucking stellar; the timing especially was incredible, definitely on point

    This is great — I had no idea they had a new album out! A very nice way to start my day.

    Have you noticed a lot of people are getting hit by busses on film these days?

    OH MY GOD. I’m dying, I can’t believe they did that and in the dead of winter it seems…. so ballsy.

    Kim is a man from the waist up and ultra sexy from the waist down.

    According to an interview with p4k, none of them were arrested cause they kept saying they had permits to do it. And when asked what the pitch was for the permit they said “Tourists walk through Times Square inappropriately dressed for the weather.” To answer more questions they just said they were shooting a mayonnaise commercial.

    Gotta love Matt and Kim

    at the start it looks like the one bystander says “You dropped your hat.”

    and Kim looks a tad uncomfortable when she is in the process of taking her shirt off, but she did it so fuck yah! Really cool vid.

    weird you can show someone get hit by a bus but not the human body. The US is very odd.

  20. Lucy May 3, 2009 at 9:42 PM

    woah, intense. And I don’t think it’s so odd, Gareth, but then again I live in the US… no blood or gore, right?

    Matt & Kim actually performed at my school but I missed the show because I FORGOT ABOUT IT. :( From the concert pictures I saw in the school newspaper, the show looked great.

    I’m kinda dubious they were entirely nakers in the video–why did they pixelate Kim’s _back_? Either she has an embarrassing tattoo she didn’t want to show, or they were wearing flesh-colored underwear and covering up the strap on the back of her bra.
