She made us wait a while, but Jenny Lewis has really been pumping out the music videos lately. And this latest, for "See Fernando" off her album Acid Tongue, might just be my favorite yet. Let's examine the evidence: Lewis in all her retro glory starring in a fake trailer for a '60s spy movie? Sign me up!
In this faux film (subtitled "Agente Secreto Numero Uno"), Fernando's imagined as a mustache-wearing, karate-chop-throwing, gun-toting baddie who gets assigned to track "The Scorpion" (Lewis) around the globe. Among the delights of this video: Lewis in an old-school airline stewardess outfit; a scene with funny subtitled dialogue shot in front of a wall of stuffed animals; and the song itself, which is just a lot of hand-clapping Summer fun. To check out the video, just read more.
