In her latest single “Elephant” she rhymes the words “douchebag” with “hashtag”.
And on Wednesday Polish pop sensation Margaret kept the clever tricks going as she unveiled her slick music video for the hip-hop-tinged single.
Wearing a gold jumpsuit she pops and locks on the street as fires burn and cars circle, but she ain’t bothered. She’s too busy channeling Rihanna and singing about our favourite African mammal: Dumbo dum diddy dumbo dum…
The “Cool Me Down” singer unveiled the track at Poland’s ESKA Music Awards in August, where she had men dressed as elephants dropping it like it was hot and thrusting to that thrusting beat.
The elephants come into play in the video as well, with men and women dressed in glamorous animal headpieces as they take selfies, play on their smartphones, throw it down on the dance floor and steal peanuts at the club. All in a night’s work, y’all….
The song’s lyrics suggest Margaret is struggling to deal with her rather annoying other half, who frequently leaves her frustrated. We’d be annoyed too if dude came home dressed as an elephant.
“You’re such a douchebag, Comin’ in here, messin’ up all my space,” she says “Put down your hashtag, killin’ my zen, Now it’s all like a haze, You make me go, so jungle-land in my head I wanna scream, ‘You, leave!’, but instead you go, Dumbo dum diddy dumbo dum..” Basically, he’s stuck in her head.
As with “Cool Me Down” there’s real earworm quality here and we’re pretty sure some of you will be doing the elephant trunk dance she busts out in the live performance. We could maybe do without the slightly creepy elephant masks though…
