It's pretty awesome that the B-52s aren't just still around and kicking (Kate Pierson is about to turn 60!), they're also still putting out hilariously fun, catchy songs, complete with their signature flamboyance and silliness. The new video for the tune "Funplex" takes place partially inside a futuristic Funplex, and partially in outer space. It seems to be about pleasure-seeking and, well, heartbreak at the Funplex.
The song itself is totally danceable, and the video is just good ol' cheesy-hokey fun. With lyrics like "Faster! Faster! Thrill! Thrill! Too much to do, it's time for a pill!" you can't help but grin and go along for the ride.
