You'd be hard-pressed not to dig a band called A Giant Dog, purely based on their name alone. Once you listen, though, it'll quickly become clear that your instantaneous love is justifiable. Take, for example, their new video for "Jizzney." The acid-washed rock offers a good dichotomy for what appears in the surrealist visuals. The video alternates between the band playing and a very strange man in a red jacket and tie with a thousand-mile gaze. It's all expertly shot, our protagonist watching the band have fun and jump into pools, eventually diving into the pool himself in an attempt to shuffle off this mortal coil ... before finally smiling. It's a video you're not soon to forget from a band you shouldn't sleep on.
