The smartly dressed simpleton at the center of Whitney's "Polly" video isn't having a very good day. The clip, directed by animator Sarina Nihei, starts off promising; sitting alone on a bench one cloudy morning, the gentleman is joined by another fellow, who just so happens to like fellows. They fall in love and go on a dune buggy ride, and it's great, until the dune buggy crashes and the boy's new beau leaves him choking in the dust. So, naturally, he decides to go for a walk through the seediest part of town, passing by addicts and dead birds (not to mention through a sludge wave) as he goes on his merry way. Is it a happy adventure? No, but it's an adventure nonetheless. Watch below.

Whitney released their debut album Light Upon the Lake earlier this year on Secretly Canadian.
