Watch: Matt & Kim reveal their “Lessons Learned”

It seems like it’s been forever since the hopelessly adorable dance/punk couple Matt & Kim came out with their last music video for “Daylight”, but thankfully the handsome duo is back again with an all new and totally outrageous video for “Lessons Learned”. And this time, Matt and Kim bare it all! That’s right; the quirky Brooklyn-ites get nude and prance around downtown New York in this rather strange and ultimately depressing video.

It all starts with a sketchy black van that sports some extremely tinted windows, in which our two heroes almost immediately proceed to jump out of. Presumably this was during the winter months, as the couple is wearing a good three or four layers of clothing which they slowly strip off while walking downtown, eventually leaving behind a trail of unwanted apparel. Then, things get surreal as they suddenly stop in the streets and grab a new perspective of life in the city (while naked), one that’s both dreamy and silly at the same time.

Up until this moment, the viewer has most likely developed a mixture of feelings, including delight and awkwardness towards the duo, but then things suddenly switch over to a depressing realization of life, death and authority. I’ll leave the rest of it up to you to figure out, but seriously, watch out for that ending! Oh and don’t forget to catch these silly clowns somewhere along their new worldwide tour, too.
