Watch the music video for Dan Deacon’s “Crash Jam.”

March 7, 2013

In this Ben O’Brien-directed clip, the manic beats of the America track “Crash Jam” are synced up to bits and pieces of a P90X workout video, speeding the fitness models up to look like spazzed-out windup toys on a sugar rush during strenuous activity or slowing them down during periods of rest or stretching to look like members of a cult. We’ve never tried P90X, but it’s supposed to be pretty exhausting. Here, it comes across as more of a farce, which is how we’d prefer to view it.
