Video of the Moment #1409: Metric

In the new promo video for their song ‘Lost Kitten’, Metric follow a gay cross-dresser around Mexico City. But that’s my far too simple explanation for going on here. Better for the band to describe it than me:

In Rawal’s reimagining of the archetypal heroic journey, Sheldon embarks on a mysterious pilgrimage through Mexico City and into the canal maze of Xochimilco on a flat-bottomed trajinera in search of his house mother, an “angel” in his memories. Upon reaching his destination, Sheldon delivers an epic vogueing performance (!) to celebrate his spiritual reunion with the maternal. His massive on-screen presence is only amplified by his bold attire: sequined jacket and kitten heels.

Right. Watch it below.
