“It’s Real” is one of Real Estate’s best tracks from Album Of The Week alum Days, so it’s fitting that the song’s equally great video maintains the same cheery, upbeat attitude. Oh, and there are like, a dozen dogs in the video, hanging out and starring in home movies. Several are wearing bowties. Bowties! This video is definitely the logical counterpoint to Best Coast’s “Crazy For You” video, although I think they blew an opportunity to include those bumper stickers that say “I [HEART] My [Picture Of Dog Breed].” Maybe next time. The always-killer Weird Days directs.
Days is out now on Domino.
