LOLK, Cupid: Jane’s Addiction Go Online Dating in ‘Another Soulmate’ Video
Men's creepy web profiles accompany Uproar Festival tour single
Jane’s Addiction video for “Another Soulmate” amusingly riffs on the idea of sketchy men trying to pick up women over the Internet. Perry Farrell has said the spit-shiny riff romp is about a lady who keeps dating strange fellas and calling each one her soulmate. The clip brings these sordid characters to life, with the band members gamely participating. We poked a bit of fun at this song when it first surfaced online, but the typo-laden profiles here are good for a quick chuckle — although yes, we’re sorry to say Farrell really is singing, “My soulmate makes me shoot my shot.” Jane’s Addiction are on the road now with Alice in Chains as part of multi-city Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival. Your best bet for backstage passes may not involve OKCupid.
