This Wild Flag Video Is Funny, but Not Portlandia Funny
Wild Flag! The indie-rock super group—yes, let's please dissect the term some—is releasing its debut album next week (look for a review in this week's WCP!) and just dropped this video for lead single "Romance." It's set in an office and has the members doing funny things, but this isn't exactly Wild Flag doing Portlandia, that most humorous of Carrie Brownstein side-projects. It's more like Wild Flag fucking up Portlandia, vandalizing a record store, ravaging a coffee shop, and schooling a Henry Rollins lookalike at basketball. Blissfully, all rock kicks are unironic.
