Take this cat week, for example. In the video for "Death To Los Campesinos!" everything stereotypically twee is present: rainbows, confetti, balloons, unicorns, and adorable kittens! Hooray! But not content to leave everything as simply a Lisa Frank themed birthday party, dudes flip it into something much more sinister and fun. I won't spoil the ending, but, needless to say, Los Campesinos! are one of the wittiest and smartest indiepop bands around, even if they paint the kittens in their video as not very nice.
