Smith Westerns - "Idol"

VideosNicholas KindrachukComment

Smith Westerns have taken it upon themselves to recreate The Ramones' music video for "I Wanna Be Sedated" for their latest music video.

Of course, "Idol" itself doesn't fall into the realm of The Ramones and is the Smith Westerns brand of light fun indie pop, but seeing them completely embrace their idols in this music video is perfect. It's a lot of fun to see that same video except with people dancing around in the background with iPods and modern technology, while keeping the video at VHS quality. "Idol" is one of the highlights from their new album Soft Will without a doubt, and the video does it the same justice.
