Beirut Video Story On Stereogum

New Beirut Video - "Elephant Gun"
Beirut should win honors with this vid for 'best depiction of mustachioed debauchery set to a ukulele-accordion waltz.' The clip's preview pics had us expecting some fancy threads, S&M poses, and ticker-tape confetti, but the ensemble's dance moves (save Zach) are an unexpectedly excellent touch. So is the can-dragging beachside stroll and festive elephant trunks (just watch) all making this the best clip you'll see all day. (He's finally drink legal, kids, so the wine bottle is legit.)
