Tegan and Sara are continuing their mission to make a video for each track on their latest album, Love You to Death. This morning (December 8), the Quin twins unleashed the playful video for “Dying to Know,” which finds them recreating a scene from Miami Vice.
Together, the duo head to Florida to cruise around in a white Lamborghini and whip through the waves in a speedboat while singing about wanting to reconnect with an ex. But here’s the catch: they’re puppets in the video. Allow Tegan to explain why:
“Sadly, neither of us can drive, nor did we have the time or funds to reshoot that famous scene in Miami,” she told Billboard. “Instead we tapped director Nathan Boey in Vancouver to reshoot it using puppets! I think it might even be better with us as puppets than if we had been in it ourselves.”
Well, there you go — an imaginative and thrifty approach.
