Sunday Drivers “My Plan”

This is a great video featuring synchronized swimming! I stumbled onto it a couple years ago and have re-visted every once and a while since then. The song itself is a treat- it feels to me like a Cole Porter song phonograph style re-interpreted as punk. The video is a real gem as well, pairing the nostalgic feel of a Busby Berkeley-like synchronized swimming with au-courant vibrant colors and attitude. I especially love the use of the balloons, and the extended diving sequence at the end is a model for screen/film/video dance (or swimming): the medium should be used to make possible–and, to a certain extent, believable–something which would otherwise be impossible.
