NEWS: Tacocat share video for ‘The Internet’

Earlier this year, Seattle pop-punk outfit Tacocat unveiled their record Lost Time via Hardly Art, which they say took the group to “wizard level.”  Even amongst its many socially-conscious gems, of the standout tracks of the LP was ‘The Internet,’ an anthem about tackling online harassment.  The band have now produced their very own video for the single, with the help of director Faye Orlove.

The song is very much rooted in contemporary society, and so it makes sense that the video mixes the logos of well-known brands such as Netflix and Amazon with memes.  But it’s not just about the culture of the 2010’s.  The clip also features a cloud-based background that may or may not be a reference to Windows ’95 and occasionally includes Word Art.  There are also animated segments with clean line drawings of technology to break up the creation of word documents, spreadsheets and emails.  Watch below.
