Team Spirit – “Phenomenon” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Generally, continuity among music videos is a thing that simply cannot exists. But over their mostly-animated videos for “Jesus, He’s Alright,” “MRDR It’s Ok,” “Fuck The Beach,” and “Teenage Love,” Team Spirit, the garage rock band led by former Passion Pit member Ayad Al Adhamy, have told the story of a debauched band who go to hell and have to escape. Their new clip for “Phenomenon” completes the five-part series and shows us what happens when the band winds up in an alternate dimension, one where they have to team up with Elvis to fight Hitler. The Swedish animation team HannesJohannes once again direct. It is absolutely ridiculous and comically violent, and you can watch it below.
