| Filed under: Music MinuteYouTubeDarren CrissCapital CitiesDogBulldog

Darren Criss plays one seksi, pissed off pooch playing poker (like dogs do sometimes) in Capital Cities' newly released and AHmazing music video for Kangaroo Court!

The music video features almost the entire animal kingdom and tells the tail of a lonely Zebra who, ostrich-sized from his community, decides to masquerade as a horse in order to gain acceptance!

There's dancing! Romancing! Tragedy! All impressively done in just shy of five minutes!

Visually arresting, and telling a story that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt left out of anything, this music video will probably go extremely viral!

Meanwhile, check out this Instagram photo Darren posted of himself dressed to the canines onset:

Darren Criss As A Bulldog Still Makes Our Nethers Tingle

| Filed under: Music MinuteDarren CrissCapital CitiesDogBulldogFunny

Darren Criss dressed up like a bulldog for a music video.

Darren Criss just posted an inneresting pic (above) to his instagram…

He had a bulldog face and an old timey hat and we're not exactly sure what's going on.

Let's see what he wrote…

"Not only did I finally get to use my actual, makeup-free bulldog face in a music video, I got to do it for the totally awesome @capitalcities with the lovely @shannonmwoodward (the cute puppy on the left- and not actually a puppy- but actually cute)"

Oh! It was for a music video for Capital Cities! That makes more sense, though we didn't know he has an actual bulldog face…

Wait… he's DEF wearing makeup!!

That's not your normally chiseled, super handsome face!

You almost had us going for a minute there! LOLz!

Listen To This: Safe & Sweet Sounds

| Filed under: Listen To ThisCapital Cities

Capital Cities are definitely more than a one-hit wonder! Though they are lucky and thankful to have a hit with their breakthrough song Safe & Sound.

The Los Angeles band's debut album is soooooooo good! And they are ELECTRIC live!

Check out Chartreuse, one of our favorite songs off their record, above!

It's like a 2013 version of Hall & Oates!

And that trumpet slays!
