Chromeo, Canada’s proudly Arab/Jewish partnership, do a little religious role-playing in the video for their single “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” (via Pitchfork). Donning a priest’s collar, David Macklovitch officiates at a Vegas wedding chapel and muses on the suffering wrought by the cardinal sin of invidia — and then he goes and runs off with one of the brides. P-Thugg, meanwhile, plays a non-denominational getaway driver. The cheeky video is right in line with the goofy hijinks of the duo’s recent “Come Alive” clip, in which Chromeo and Toro y Moi suck face with mannequins, but when it comes to the funk, these two Canucks aren’t fooling around. Feel-good takes on feeling bad don’t come much sunnier.

Chromeo’s upcoming album, White Women — featuring “Jealous” along with previously debuted singles “Come Alive,” “Sexy Socialite,” and “Over Your Shoulder” — is out May 12 on Big Beat.
