The Format Armed with ‘Dog Problems’

Orchestral indie pop darlings the Format have released the clever and cute video for "Dog Problems."

The video for the Format’s title track off Dog Problems has just dropped, and it’s a positively cute clip populated by hands. The video follows our forefinger protagonist (complete with singer Nate Ruess’ trademark hat atop the knuckles) doing the things a normal human would do: Singing to his cheating lover, wandering neon-lit streets somberly, perusing MySpace, smoking himself to sleep, and, um, fantasizing over a mannequin’s perfect hand. And we see a little slihouetto of a hand! A quartet of appendages remake the famous shot from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” video.
