Brooklyn duo Matt and Kim live together, play together, and take a serious beating together. Reinventing the childhood dream of life erupting into an impromptu food fight in their new video, they welcome flying food with a smile and continue to play along to the snappy tune even as their stark white surroundings are turned into a grade school teacher’s nightmare. Once the ammo is all used up, the couple are attacked by life-sized food items, like the human taco that destroys their instruments and pummels them to the ground.
