New Old 97’s Video – “Dance With Me”
The tangoing “Dance With Me” comes from countrified Dallas quartet Old 97’s seventh studio album Blame It On Gravity. For the video, the guys send an asthmatic, bowlegged “Level-30 Alchemist” with a “Frack Me” t-shirt into a club in search of his beloved Tricia Helfer, who plays Number Six on Battlestar Galactica. This is where it becomes a Kung Fu flick homage, resulting in some elaborate synchronized fighting, including our hero surfing down the stairs on the back of one of the fallen bouncers. I’ve never watched Battlestar Galactica, but I’m trusting this lady’s worth the fuss. She seems nice enough.
Interesting fact: In 2005, Old 97’s frontman Rhett Miller received two votes in the annual Mr. Indie Rock poll.
