Haim Make Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone Cry Crazily in ‘The Wire’ Video
Two other guys also get their hearts broken by the sisters
It’s official: Haim are heartbreakers. The just-released video for recent single “The Wire” finds sisters Este, Danielle, and Alana breaking up with their respective suitors, thus setting off three separate emotional meltdowns. Getting dumped by such talented up-and-comers would weigh heavily on anyone, so can you blame the poor saps for being a little sensitive? Well, maybe there are a few too many tears shed; and maybe they shouldn’t have taken those promises of “Forever” too seriously; and maybe that part where the one dude weeps into a pair of ladies’ underwear — nope, no defending that one.
The four-minute clip co-stars Jorma Taccone of the Lonely Island, who also had a recurring role on HBO’s Girls and is apparently very adept at bawling like a baby. Watch the video above, and pre-order Haim’s September 30 debut album, Days Are Gone, via iTunes. Find tour dates below.
