Passion Pit – “I’ll Be Alright” Video

By Tom Breihan / July 18, 2012

A little while ago, Vice ran a series of interviews with security guards at the Whitney Biennial, asking them what they thought of the pieces of contemporary art on display. That’s a subject I’ve long wondered about. And in their video for the dizzy single “I’ll Be Alright,” Passion Pit also tackle the question, after a fashion. In the video (the winner of a Genereo.tv competition), a guard pops a couple of pills and then starts thinking that a piece of minimal art is singing to him. He responds, um, accordingly. Watch it below.

Passion Pit’s new album Gossamer is out 7/24 on Columbia. Stream it here.
