I just got caught for the SECOND TIME today rocking out to this song. It’s time to confess to the Internets at large that I have listened to this song approximately 871 times today.
Yes! My name is Kat and I am addicted to Timbaland, feat. One Republic.
It’s not that it’s a particularly good song. It’s that the video is So. Delectably. Silly. It’s full of metaphors so heavy-handed that frankly I CANNOT get enough.
I’ve trained my ears to tune to the exact moment that wedding cake couple statute bursts into flames — GET IT, IT’S A SYMBOL OF THEIR ENDED LOVE — followed immediately by the flaming flowers, WHICH REPRESENT PERMANENTLY SQUELCHED HOPE.
Enjoy, interwebs, but beware: Symbolism this nuanced can be addictive. Watch with care!
