The actresses Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart attached mustaches to their lips for Jenny Lewis’s music video.
Brie Larson joined the two for a little action in the new music video. Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart starred in the Jenny Lewis video clip with their Adidas sports suits, baseball caps and mustaches.
Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart did their break dance routines as per directions. Jenny Lewis’s video song was termed “Just One of the Guys,” that was debuted on GQ this week. Even Lewis put on a tracksuit and grizzly fake beard for the video.
"We screamed with laughter all day, huddled behind the monitor," Lewis tells GQ.com. "I haven't laughed that hard since What About Bob? came out on laser disk."
The hermaphrodite looks given in the song are a borrowing from her artistic enterprise titled The Voyager. The album basically deals with the death of her father four years ago and also pours forth the frustration of seeing her band go to pot.
The video though is a lot of fun. It portrays the females in drag and makes the smile muscles appear on everyone’s face.
The album is due out on July 29.. And Jenny Lewis is the manliest of all the dragsters on the video.
Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway has a rat’s tail on her upper lip. They are indeed a hilarious bunch – the three of them – if you don’t mind crossing gender boundaries and going on a gender bender of sorts.
The 70s look of mustachioed men in jogging suits is what the whole ensemble portrays. It shows that there is a very thin and fine line that divides males from females and transsexuals too from either males or females.
"The rat tail was all Annie," Lewis said. "Deep character exploration. Her dude is a bit more Backstreet Boy than the rest. Melancholy Backstreet Boy is what I think she was going for—he really feels things deeply and break dances like a motherfucker."
With the MTV generation going strong, such video clips have become the norm. They depict the passions, wishes and desires of teenagers. The pictorial fashions shown reflect their deepest fantasies and the collective unconscious which shapes the Zeitgeist.
Jenny Lewis too faced the conflicts of an artist and thus transformed her pain and pressures into the mold of the video clip. The music is very funky and the scenes that unfold along with it are quite cool and classy.
They are a western take on the gender divide and the whole gestalt in a way says that whether you are a man or a woman…it’s alright either way!
