In the Mike Aho-directed video for “How About Thank You,” the opening song from Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s Chijimi 10″, we follow two young boys in split screen preparing for a stand-off: One plays a guitar, one a Rubik’s Cube. They both fiddle. After a time, popping pimples on game faces, they grab their Mardi Gras beads and head outdoors. Too much more would give away the ending, but it’s worth noting Will Oldham shows up doing a snaky dance in “Dance Dance Revolution.” The Bonnie one’s backed by Cheyenne Mize and Emmett Kelly on Chijimi’s four tracks. They join him in the game, too.
The Chijimi 10″ EP is out via Drag City.
