Deltron 3030's Dan the Automator and Mary Elizabeth Winstead's Video for "Did We Live Too Fast" Would Make Ernest Hemingway Proud
It's the first video from their project Got a Girl's debut record 'I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now,' which might be the greatest album title ever.
Dan the Automator—one of the minds behind cult hip-hop group Deltron 3030—has teamed up with actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who you probably recognize as the girl with the colored hair from Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, to for Got a Girl. The duo are releasing their debut collaboration called I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now, which is probably one of the greatest album titles in the history of music, on July 22 via Bulk Recordings, but in the meantime we have the video premiere of "Did We Live Too Fast," which is a short black and white clip illustrating some of the complications we often face in our relationships (like a significant other finding a dirty magazine), and then, well... things get kind of weird. Directed by comic book writer and illustrator Hope Larson, the video aesthetically echoes the song's French pop feeling. Somebody give us a cigarette to smoke like we're in Paris in the 1920s.
