ICYMI: Alex Turner Gets Totally Wasted In New Arctic Monkeys Video (NSFW)

By Staff on August 14, 2013



The legends of modern Brit-rock are back with a hilarious and embarrassing new video for their song "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?"


Staying true to the song's title, the video portrays the drunken misadventures of Arctic Monkeys' frontman, Alex Turner, as he tries to make his way to a potential booty call while on his way back from the pub...but he soon begins to realize that he might be a bit too plastered to make it. Does he succeed? Watch and find out.


The new Arctic Monkeys video is a brilliant exercise in schadenfreude--we get to watch Mr. Turner's painfully drunken stumbles through the streets of Sheffield in a hapless attempt to hook up. What's best about this video, though, is the way in which it presents some ridiculously trippy and unusual visuals in order to allow the viewers to question their own sobriety along with Turner.


Be warned, however, while this video is highly entertaining, it is also NSFW - so make sure to wait till you get home to watch this one!


"Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?" will be featured on Arctic Monkeys' new album, AM, out September 10th.
