Fun.’s Music Video “Walking The Dog” Is, Well, Just Plain Fun

If you haven’t heard of the band Fun., you’d better research them quickly.  You might be surprised to find out that the outfit is fronted by Nate Ruess, formerly of pop rock darlings The Format.  You shouldn’t be surprised, however, to discover that the music is catchy, clever, and all around, um, fun.  The band’s single “Walking The Dog” is a delightful blend of pop and pleasure, but the accompanying video is dynamite.  Filled with with jazzy neon colors, fancy videography mashups, and creative split-screen shots, the video exemplifies the band’s ability to have a blast while making good music.  Don’t believe me?  See for yourself.
