Get Bitten By Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ New Video For ‘Mosquito’

Written by Sarah Bella on May 8, 2013

Oh, those wacky Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Karen O and company have dropped the squeamishly psychedelic video for Mosquito, the title track from their fourth studio album, and they’ve decided to get literal – check it out below.

The clip, directed by B. Shimbe Shim, features a rather realistic CGI mosquito sucking the blood from a small boy. As the bug feasts on the child, it gets bigger and more lurid, with the video getting more and more icky-feeling as it progresses, although the kid seems pretty unfussed.

It’s a pretty far cry from the MTV-esque music video for the single’s predecessor, Sacrilege, which starred model Lily Cole in a sequence of backwards events. Nope, Mosquito is just one, long gruesome shot and kudos to you if you can sit through the whole thing – it just made us feel a little off-colour.
