Basement Jaxx – “Sereia De Bahia (Mermaid Of Bahia)” Video
The World Cup begins today in Brazil, which means, among other things, every man, woman, and child in the United Kingdom is in a state of extreme euphoric anxiety. Both members of dance duo Basement Jaxx are British, and perhaps they channeled some of that joyous dread into “Sereia De Bahia,” their new version of their 2013 track “Mermaid Of Bahia,” this time recorded with Brazilian singer Nina Miranda. Alan Masferrer directed the video, which has dancing matadors and hula dancers and Baywatch lifeguards acting like human gifs. It’s below.
