The Video - Kurt Vile's " Pretty Pimpin"





he was always a thousand miles away while still standing in front of your face ....



The great video for the wonderful opening track to Vile's magnificent "B'lieve I'm Goin Down...".

With some cap doffing to Tom Petty, the song's a surreal and witty, post-modern exploration of existentialist angst "I proceeded to brush some stranger’s teeth but they were my teeth, and I was weightless") and nihilistic tendencies ("all I want is to just have fun, live my life like a son of a gun")....   Or something!

Here in the vid, we find Vile and his alter-egos pensively stalking and rocking in various exciting urban locales.

The promo was directed by Daniel Henry.
