The Gay Blades eyeing N.H.D.N.

From the album, Ghosts.

The Gay Blades describe themselves as playing trash pop. No one could have described it any better than, "when two keenly observant wanna-be hipsters write and record songs the same pair couldn't possibly pull off live, and make up for their missing bass player with consistently explosive performances and a heaping spoonful of swagger".

Video turns from a comedy into a heavy drama so casually you don't really notice. About halfway through, we realize what's going on with the friend in the back, can't be spoiled here, watch it. And a certain line of dialogue seems completely random earlier on, only it isn't. Would the dog be his dæmon like in The Golden Compass ?
