There’s a music video genre you didn’t know you knew, but you definitely know it. I call it «grubby love» — the colors are drab, the apartment is icky, someone’s wearing a dirty wife beater, the actors are super hot and styled perfectly but so poor they have to steal. In real life, all these scenes would seem pretty sad but because it’s shot for a music video, you think, «Ah, I want that grubby love. I want to meet a guy who doesn’t have sheets on his mattress.» Don’t believe me? Ha, read ‘em and weep.
