Well, well, well! If it isn’t my old nemesis, 240p!
Schmoof is an electronic duo consisting of Sarah and Lloyd Schmoof. They did a video for a song called “Chocolate Boyfriend”, which I found out about after lurking on EC Gunge. For those who don’t remember or can’t be bothered to look it up, there was this interview which doesn’t exactly paint an attractive picture of the reason the video is on here…
In the video for your single, Chocolate Boyfriend, you have a bath in chocolate – what was that like?
I’d been looking forward to it for weeks but I’m disappointed to say it didn’t live up to my expectations. It was incredibly hot and I felt ightheaded for several hours afterwards. I also stank for days and I got thrush.
Lovely. Just lovely.
If you’re not bothered about the music and just want to see the chocolate bath, watch from about 2:52.
There was a bit of an argument about whether the song was any good and, while it was nearly seven years ago, I’ll just say that I am not really a fan of it. Like, at all.
So, the little Paramore extra. I didn’t think I’d be revisiting a revisit so soon, but there you go. I’m also revisiting the WAM-inspired fashion post. Why? Because Hayley owns a pair of those gooey leggings that sadly, the link to died. She even wears them in their newest video, “Still Into You”. There’s nothing else of interest from a WAM standpoint in the video, but it’s a cute enough song and video. Maybe too cute – it’s more the kind of song I’d expect from someone like Carly Rae Jepsen than from Paramore.
Both “Now” and “Still Into You” can be found on their self-titled album, which has the following cover:
I wonder what’s come over them lately? (And I swear, if some smartarse says “powder paint”…)
