Habibi: I Got the Moves

Recently I had a chance to apologize to someone about always coming off as such an idiot, and for whatever reason this Habibi video was brought up in her response. I’m not sure of all the details of why I’m in it in the first place, though I do recall my friend asking if I would do it since I was such a “cool guy.” Unsurprisingly, my character was named “Cool Guy #3,” ( a role the director said I played quite naturally.) From what I remember, the video was filmed in some loft in Brooklyn near Baby’s All Right, where I would later loose my maroon hoodie at and stumble home from crying. Although this likely had more to do with the free vodka than anything necessarily inherent, I assume it was cause I’m a cool guy like that. The girl who mentioned the video lives in California and hates me, (a description that protects her anonymity thanks to the preponderance of girls who fall into that category.) As she related the story to me, her band really wanted to cover the song, but upon watching the video and seeing my face, she was so disgusted and filled with hatred and decided she could never, ever hear that song again. This is the influence cool guys can have on other people’s set lists.

Habibi is an all-girl Burger band based out of Brooklyn, and the video was directed by my friends Rachelyn Rez & Alice Barlow. Check it out, fuck yeah Cool Guy #3…
