Haim promo

LA sister trio Haim flips the hokey “boy breaks up with girl — girl can’t get over the breakup and eats her weight in cheese and drowns in wine” stereotype on its head in their new video for “The Wire.”

In the chuckle-worthy clip, the sisters break up with each of their significant others (one being Jorma Taccone of The Lonely Island and Girls) rather harshly. We see how the breakup effect affects each sister’s drama-queen ex-beau, and it’s not pretty. There is a lot of crying. A lot of drinking. And for us, a lot of laughs.

So instead of the women being the dumped weepy messes, these independent ladies take charge and leave the boys to pick up the pieces.

Be sure to check out Haim’s debut album, Days Are Gone, when it releases on September 30th, and if you were lucky enough to get tickets, their sold-out show at The Fonda Theatre on October 16th is sure to be a great one!
