Like the video and the song. Does anyone else pronounce Yeasayer's name as Yay-sayer?

I feel like the video is sort of based off of the lyrics of the song.... which appear to be about being in a relationship with someone who you don't feel that you deserve ("it's getting hard to keep pretending i'm worth your time", "if my vices become a burden... cast me from your home", etc). And, in the video, that monster-thing clearly would feel undeserving of someone like Kristin Bell

Great video, regardless. And Kristin Bell... just wow... could should be any more awesome?

Great song...what just happened in that video though? I did feel kind of sad when her hairy tumor pet died, but I was confused mostly.

That video is seriously disturbing. I think it's provocative, in a different way that Yeasayer's music can be provocative-- or at least original.

Not a Kristen Bell fan, but when I make myself look at it objectively, she did a great job. I won't watch it again, though, because... wow, yeah, seriously disturbing.
