Video Review: Tove Lo “Disco Tits”

On a talk show, a puppet asks her to laugh and she does. He comments that it’s hilarious. Noticing the camera is on, he says “Hello world! Hope you are having your best day!” and introduces Tove Lo.

She corrects him with the right pronunciation. He retorts that it’s how it’s said in America. She furrows her brow and responds, “the right way?” She adds that since it’s his show, he can say it however he pleases. He mentions she has a new album, which will be released soon. She says it’s called Blue Lips. He says it was thought it was Ladywood and inquires as to what the title means. She answers that it means “a chick with balls.” His eyes bug out of his head. The director calls “Cut!” The make up artists brush her face while he explains that she needs to watch her language. He says it’s a bland show but he’s okay with it. She tips his chin and asks him if he’d rather be vanilla or another flavor. He doesn’t know what to choose. “If you can get me out of here,” she flirts, “I can show you some of my favorites.” He looks straight into the camera and hums.

As Lo drives, they headbang and pump their arms to the music. She fist bumps and pets him. They kiss. She puts his hand underneath his shirt. For a split second, he appears as human.

They pull up at a diner. As she picks up food with her fork, he says he wants barbecue sauce. She wonders why he wants barbecue sauce with fries. He calls for the server. She asks him “what’s wrong with you?” The customers turn their heads as he states “this isn’t as fun as you said it was going to be and I quit my job!” Then, he calls her a bitch and throws his basket of fries at her. She punches him in the face.

Underneath the neon lights inside a dive bar, Lo rubs her hands all over her body as they dance. At a motel room, they have sex. She slips him a pill.

They continue to dance inside the bar and the car. In human form, she runs her hands through his hair.

Back on the talk show, she asks him if he does yoga. He answers “sometimes.” They both agree it’s a healthy thing to do. He starts the show again with “Hello world!”

Rating: 0/5

Every morning, the puppet wakes up, puts on his pants and goes to work.  It’s a regional talk show which he hopes to get syndicated one day. On his show, he usually has cooking demonstrations or plays games with the audience members. Local celebrities appear on the show. To Love is his first major guest.

He fantasizes between takes that he quits his show and runs off with her. Then, they’ll have sex all the time. He expects her to be as wild and self-destructive as her songs. There isn’t any interest in getting to know her beyond her body. He’s with Tove Lo now, which means he’s famous and people will have to do what he says. Tove Lo, most of all, isn’t allowed to question it.

Back on the show, they talk between takes. He says nothing of his desires but plans on walking in her dressing room, unannounced, feigning ignorance and ogling her body. Lo remembers that she was warned by her manager not to be alone with him and sticks to small talk.
