There were a few contenders for Best Video. Ultimately Chromeo took home the prize simply for being two of the coolest peeps on the planet. The video for Old 45s, one of our favourite tracks on their White Women album, epitomises this.
Directed by Dugan O’Neal, the clip is six minutes of distilled Chromeo. Suave, funny, classy, slightly dreamlike and incredibly retro. With cameos from HAIM and Napoleon Dynamite‘s Jon Heder the video blends narrative, comedy and performance with a stunning, and shockingly expensive, leather jacket from Dave-1. See how cool people are when they don’t take themselves seriously?
