That is a girl? What an ugly nasty female! And to make it worse she is wearing mens underwear...ugh my penis just went inside out!

Posted by asdas@dd.com | April 21, 2009 6:04 PM

Aside from them getting naked...what is the point of this video?? Are they that taken aback by the video screens in Times Square? The looks on their faces are so dumb and annoying

"and kim's a total babe" if she's a babe, then most women are hot! i would say she is maybe cute - on a good day. as for their music: junk!

Dear Matt & Kim,

Despite my intense love/hate relationship with your band, I like the video and think most of these comments are pretty over-the-top awful. Also, your next single should be I'll Take Us Home.

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 11:34 PM

I always wonder how they do the digitizing- do they have to wear flesh-colored underwear so it doesn't show up under the bars?

Anyway... that was a garbage video for a garbage song.

so many things in this video fill me with rage.

horrible song that makes me feel like im in a k hole..."la la la la la?" COME ON!

chick is awful looking, she seriously looks like a dude. no, seriously. if any men think she is hot than you may be gay. just saying.

the look on their faces? i puked in my mouth and it made me feel very stabby.

awful band !!!!!!

The ending is obviously fake. Is the whole video fake? If it's not, didn't they have to get a signed release from every bystander in the video?

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 2:52 AM

Harsh comments! It's funny how something as inoffensive as matt and kim attract such net hate. I think they should be proud of that video, it's a good concept and it's done well. Fits with the song well

Also, close minded comments on kim looking like a man or looking hot or whatever. Why don't you just, you know, be happy

Posted by mark | April 22, 2009 3:00 AM

Who are you people commenting? SO fucking lame, lol.

No art or love in your souls.

I'll interpret my opinion of the video:

They strip themselves / dissolve their shells and walk naked in a commercialized tourist zone and admire the world for what it is.

They are shunned for living within their spirit and fought and even hurt by the forces of a status quo that hold down freedom of being.

just a quick thought.

A totally non-scientific, approximate breakdown of Brooklyn Vegan commenters:

75% - Get a rise out of typing the word "titties" on the iMac that Mommy and Daddy bought them
22% - Hate every band in NYC that they didn't like first
3% - Are actually interested in the music

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 10:56 AM

I just can't shake the idea that almost all the hipster and woman bashing on this site stems from one issue: the commenter's difficulty in getting laid.

I find this band annoying as hell, but Matt has a nice body.

Posted by I'd hit it | April 22, 2009 11:02 AM

Is this a statement on how they feel about MTV? Getting naked and vulnerable in front of 1515 Broadway....

Posted by KevinV | April 22, 2009 12:08 PM

i'd like to be the filling in a matt & kim sammich please. they're hot.

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 12:09 PM

All of you people complaining about misogyny seem to be forgetting that a fucking rock band got naked and filmed it for attention.

Seriously, Matt and Kim are pretty straightforward -- 90% of the people here wouldn't have even watched the clip if there was no promised nudity. Sure, a lot of the comments are unfair, but how about relying on your music for attention instead of behaving like Madonna or something.

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 12:10 PM

8:37, what do people care about?

I think many of you are scared robots in constant defense mode needing to project negativity to hide your own insecurities.

"If it's not, didn't they have to get a signed release from every bystander in the video?"

No, with cameras present there is implied consent.

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 4:00 PM

I'm pretty amazed so many people think they're actually naked. To be fair, it's not like I have any insider info or evidence to the contrary, but let's just think about things here, idiots... er, people:

If two people were walking around Times Square naked, would every other person just stand around? Even if it was obvious the naked people were being filmed, would nobody try to walk/run away, nobody try to call the authorities, nobody try to cover them up, nobody confront them and asking what they were doing? And of those dozens of people standing around, nobody's face is obscured, so either every single person signed a letter of consent, or they all knew what was happening in the first place. And the most obvious giveaway, of course, is that there's no way two cops would try to apprehend a pair of naked people, let the naked people would just run twenty feet away from them, and not pursue them.

Stop trying to make this into some sort of amazing artistic statement or bestowing honors on how real it is. It's just a shitty video.

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 4:17 PM

4:17, you are the idiot. It was an enclosed film shoot with extras at the point where they are "naked". Do yourself a favor and watch the last 90 seconds of the video and look around at the empty streets other than the place where they are standing.

"No, with cameras present there is implied consent."

This is definitely not correct. Spike Jonze says when they shot the "Praise You" video they had PAs running around getting releases from every single bystander who walked through the shot.

Posted by DJorn | April 22, 2009 11:49 PM

more artists should do naked videos. look how much face time they're getting on BV.

Kindly please STFU. You're obviously not a lawyer, or you wouldn't be giving out dumbass advice like that.

If you don't know what you're talking about (which you don't) then just keep your mouth shut and spare the rest of us your verbal diarrhea.

how can we worry over this while the hipster grifter remains at large, grifting at will. She's probably giving some poor loser a handjob with her mouth even as we speak, while humming theme songs from syndicated 70s and 80s cartoon shows in the garden behind Daddy's.

Oh, she's good. Watch out boy, she'll chew you up.

Can't matt find someone attractive to get naked with? Kim's a hatchet-faced dog, I imagine everyone there was begging her to get dressed.

Too bad the police didn't stomp them. They deserve a good stomping, like all hippies, vegans, liberals and other varieties of loser.

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2009 6:08 PM

I think all of you are morons.. Did anyone ever stop to think maybe they just made this video just to make it. Id dose not need to have a meaning. And to all you f*#king Kim Haters She may not be the next Megan Fox, but she IS a great artist and should be respected for her talent. Once you are all perfect then you can talk about her. Peace out f*&kers!

Posted by Maddie | October 22, 2009 4:41 AM

"why do they blur her back too? gang tats? or does she have boobs on her back?"

The ones on her back are bigger

Literally the only reason i googled this group after seeing them on MTV was to find out if that was a girl, or a gay guy and they were being sarcastic w/ the upper blur

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2009 6:06 AM

here is a link where you can find out more on them and the video.
Kim is a woman and straight (damn it) and Matt and Kim are a couple.

stop bashing them please.

matt and kim are AMAZING.
their videos are AMAZING.
their style is AMAZING.
their music is AMAZING.
and kim is very pretty and her tomboyish style is AMAZING and awesome. :]

and if you don't like them, don't listen to them or watch the video!
no one's forcing you so, if you don't like their music or their video and you commented about it, you have absolutely NOTHING BETTER TO DO.

Thanks for the comment Steve. I actually wrote in a comment here a few weeks ago asking what was happening with this blog after the announcement that O'Reilly was dropping the Digital Media division. It's really refreshing to get an honest comment on what's happening. I really hope the blog picks up again.
