The Big Pink Make Their Feelings on Ice Queens Known

It has to be tough creating a video for a song as catchy as the Big Pink’s “Dominos” (off the forthcoming stupidly titled A Brief History of Love): How do you hook the viewer as they’ve hooked the listener? Whoever made this clip settled on exploding ice sculptures of women. This is not particularly successful as a means of holding one’s attention, but it does succeed at highlighting the skeevy aspect of the song: The singer seems to be suggesting that all women are cold and, as a result, should probably be destroyed in dramatic fashion. Or at least that’s what we hear. Because of the guy’s accent and slurry delivery, the verses are sort of difficult to make out. (This video sucks.)
