The Format Armed with ‘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.
