60-second video critic


Move over Toni Basil and Ryan Pardey’s murderous Santa Claus; there’s a new contender for Vegas’ best-ever music video. Kid Meets Cougar’s “Hey Hey” finds director Mike Thompson—he of recently CineVegas-debuted full-length feature Thor at the Bus Stop—mind-linking a desert-galloping robot with an office-chained human. The two beings grapple, dance ... and switch purposes. Or something like that. Plus, it’s got Kid Meets Cougar, aka local indie duo Brett Bolton and Courtney Carroll, running to keep up with their instruments, zooming out ahead of them on a truck (they admit to being winded after the scene, which was actually shot twice as fast, then slowed to provide that oh-so-dreamy quality). Oh yeah, and the song rules, too—a catchy slice of electronic pop that bodes well for the pair’s debut album, set to drop on July 18.
