Watch Puppets Play Tame Impala’s “Cause I’m A Man”

Manly puppets.

May 29, 2015

Tame Impala had an amusing idea for their "'Cause I’m A Man" video: in the clip, directed by Dan Dipaola and Megan McShane, the song is performed by 5 puppets. This adds a dollop of humor to the track’s assertive, male-centric hook, "cause I’m a man, woman/ don’t always think before I do." The puppets head-bang their way through the song’s sludgy groove. Pay special attention to the guitarist in back, who gazes steadily skyward as he plays his riffs.
