Video: Robin Thicke "Love After War"
Everybody wanna be a French new wave cinema auteur all of a sudden. Right in step with the times, Robin Thicke enjoys a last tango in Paris with his real-life wifey Paula Patton–in the Hype Williams-directed video for “Love After War“ and who wouldn’t? Let’s be honest she is the main reason most of us did not shoot ourselves in the head halfway through Precious (good movie, just not a feel-good movie). Luckily unlike most new wave classics which end in mutual contempt and existential crisis (if not suicide) this couple keep the cinematic tropes to platinum blonde wigs and stripey shirts and a little romp in their Marie Antoinette drawing room. Also luckily he doesn’t sing like he’s French, either (no shots). Thicke’s LP of the same name has been pushed back from November 15th to at least Dec. 6th, but you can pre-order on iTunes.
