Having a shit day? Watch the ‘Patricia’ video by Superbody (below) and you are guaranteed to laugh with delight. It looks like an awful lot of fun was had while making this thing. The ‘Patricia’ video is an exaggerated supernova of 80s references, including nods to Paul Simon’s ‘You Can Call Me Al’ video, Jane Fonda’s workout gear, school picture day poses, the color palette of ‘Miami Vice,’ and a lone crucifix earring (we miss you, George Michael).

Superbody describe themselves as “an entertainment and media project comprised of Robert Gregg McCurry the 2nd & Caleb Jackson Dills based in the foothills of Northwestern Georgia, USA.” Their sophomore album, Youth Music, is due March 24th.

The cast of the ‘Patricia’ video keep a straight face throughout the video’s duration. As Susan Sontag once wrote, “Camp is art that proposes itself seriously, but cannot be taken altogether seriously because it is ‘too much.'”
