Maybe the biggest statement in Gold Panda’s “Marriage” video is how good looking normal looking people are. So many stares into the camera, so many warm grins. But you get the sense these are GP’s adult, creative-industry-but-nine-to-five job-working friends, or at least they could be. There’s a great shot of a guy in the road getting honked at: he’s completely relaxed about the whole thing, even better off for it. For such a non-narrative video, mostly about the types of people who can hold lanterns, this is making us feel really, really good.
