We already thought Tegan and Sara’s song, I Was A Fool, was totally amazeballz.
But now that we’ve seen the music video that goes along with it, we love it even more!!!!
Everyone is a fool for love at least once in their lives, right!?!? We think so, and the lyrical mastery of this song expresses that perfectly. The visuals that go along with those lyrics express that too, and in a way we ADORE — through what seems to be a lesbian love story!
Tegan and Sara were our heroes for promoting marriage equality once before, and now they've done it again!
The main character in their vid, played by Mae Whitman, is a lonely lover pining for the lost love of someone named Sidney. Our bet is that Sid’s a girl — a bet supported by the fact that Mae is no stranger to playing gay roles. Remember her in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World??
The video is hauntingly beautiful in this and many other regards!!
Ch-ch-check it out! (above)
