fun LEAD

I thought fun. had released the official video for their ubiquitous track “We Are Young” featuring Janelle MonĂ¡e back in September, but apparently that (confusing) video was just the appetizer to the visual main course that landed in my inbox last week.

This OFFICIAL music video features the band performing in front of a rowdy audience that’s engaged in a brawl to end all brawls. When shown in stunning slow motion, the image of a young lady having a bottle broken over her head actually comes across as quite artistic. Don’t believe me? Check out the official video for yourself and let me know your thoughts in the comments. Gratuitously violent? Hilarious? Beautiful? Sound off below!
