Male Bonding, a noise-pop band from London, filmed a fun, surprising take on the laid-back, summer-drenched music video. The boys shoot some hoops, kick back with some beers, and move from arm-wrestling to a kissing party.
Even as a gay man, it still shocks me to see two men kissing on television, in films, or a music video like this, streamed over the Internet. I guess it’s that these images are still so rare that they avoid normalization.
It’s amazing to me this simple yet transgressive act of men kissing can be so affirming.
