Wampire – Wizard Staff

[jwplatform 3tJIDCJS-Pqiywodl]

Wampire’s video for “Wizard Staff” is all kinds of quirky-geeky strange. The story focuses on two suburban detectives who are charged with finding a mysterious bearded wizard, after a woman comes to their office with a story and a sketch. Half of their antics are preposterously serious, with beige trench coats, binoculars, and complex bulletin boards making up the tools for their undercover hunt. The other half are just preposterous. The “Wiz Biz Inc.” team cruises on a bicycle-built-for-two, later switching it up to charge around town on rollerblades. They stray from their mission several times with psychedelic trips, one at a saxophone concert called “Sax Addict,” and another on the living room rug of a random, half-robed pianist. Just as they begin to lose focus again, spit-take laughing over a book of wizard jokes, their culprit comes for them. The final scene shows shaky hands surrounding a crystal ball, with the wizard’s red face laughing villainously from within.

From Wampire’s full-length album, Bazaar, out now.
