Good things often come in twos, like double-albums and FADER covers. Hardcore legends OFF!’s newest music video lies in the same vein, as the single clip really contains separate videos for two different songs. Together, "Borrow and Bomb" and "I Got News For You" mark the second and third installments—and therefore, the ending—of an absurd comic trilogy directed by Whitey McConnaughy. The bulk of the video takes place at an awkward teenage talk show, whose host (played by Dave Foley of The Kids in the Hall) becomes extremely uncomfortable when the band, as the show's guest, break in with "Borrow and Bomb." The last minute or so features a very strange dance/workout set to "I Got News For You," and only gets weirder as it goes along. OFF! is currently on tour, with upcoming cities and dates listed here.
