“All of Me,” is a track by indie duo Tanlines on their recently released album Mixed Emotions. The song is perfect for a Friday – upbeat, catchy, enough to get you to 5PM. So, I guess it brings a little bit of balance into the world that the video has a totally different vibe – drab, weird, confusing.
The video, directed by Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh, features a bunch of middle-aged folks sitting around a dimly lit room in business attire, until one man puts in a video of Tanlines playing. When the music starts, people begin to get up and dance to the song in the most awkward way possible. Seriously. It’s really awkward.
