Lena Dunham directed Bleachers
' new video for "Don't Take The Money," where her real-life boyfriend, frontman Jack Antonoff, gets (fake) married in an extravagant and surreal backyard wedding.
The clip begins with the officiant, played by Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development
), trying to talk some sense into Antonoff as he seems to be in denial about the whole wedding. The 80s-influenced pop song matches perfectly with visuals of the brightly-colored nuptials between Antonoff and his mail-order bride. In a scene where the wedding guests are mannequins and Shawkat is leading the ceremony holding a New Jersey travel book, the wedding takes a turn. Antonoff - wearing an amazing gem bedazzled and pinned suit - soon finds out his bride's Russian spy lady lover came to crash the party, throwing a few punches to Antonoff along the way. Poor Jack is thrown out of his own wedding and Alia Shawkat has every right to say, "I told ya so."
Bleachers' new album, Gone Now
, will be out on June 2nd.
