Darwin Deez : You Can't Be My Girl

And you thought stock footage was boring.

Caviar's Keith Schofield is back with another brililant music video--and, perhaps the most spectacular use of stock footage, we've seen--ever, in Darwin Deez's "You Can't Be My Girl."

Schofield illustrates the lovelorn ways of the band's frontman by comping him into saccharine scenes straight out of stock photo's vanilla love archives, as well as a handful of racier scenarios. The singer's angst plays out more dramatically through the song's bridge, when we find him caught up in various action-packed interludes, including one where he gets put through the meat-grinder, literally. His despair then continues into his golden years, when the greying Deez (aka Darwin Smith) looks longfully upon couples who seem straight out of a Viagra ad.
