Lazy Eye (5:55)

Cover of Carnavas

From Carnavas and 10 other releases

The music video for “Lazy Eye” was directed by Suzie Vlcek, who directed the band’s “Kissing Families” video as well as the video for Tegan and Sara’s “The Con”. It was produced by Eric Morgan.
It takes place in a club, possibly in the 1970s judging by the hairstyles and clothing, brimming with teenagers dancing to the song as the band plays live on stage. The video alternates between the band playing, and a young girl with short hair who is very attractive. The girl is waiting for her boyfriend, and when he finally does show up, she ignores him and dances with another guy, notably when the song takes an angrier tone. The boy sits down for a while, looking very depressed, then waits outside, talking with friends. The girl eventually leaves the club, and sees him outside waiting, just like she waited for him. This reveals to her that he really does care about her, and they leave in good temper. Former band member Jack Kennedy also makes an appearance as the bartender. The video received airplay from MTV, VH1, Fuse, MTVU, and International Music Feed.

    Playing this on Rock Band used to piss me off quite a bit. Just listening to this, I acutally like it quite a bit.

    They're very cool. Remind me a bit of Smashing Pumpkins with a bit of Sonic Youth, thrown in for good measure.

    This is the worst bar/club/party/whatever-it-is I've ever seen. They dance like bored zombies.

    I remember when this song came out and what was the name of the girl in the video was the subject of much debate.

    I always thought that the lead singer sounded a bit like Anthony Green

    You know you thought the vocalist was a girl just from hearing him at the beginning of the song.

    thought of the Smashing Pumpkins instantly but I love that sound! I also love how long this song is?? It just seems to keep going, it's perfect.
