The Offspring Releases New Music Video Featuring….Chimpanzees?
The Offspring is back, baby! With their latest item titled “Let the Bad Times Roll” releasing earlier this year in April, the music video for “We Never Have Sex Anymore” has finally released on YouTube, and well…it’s certainly something. From chimpanzees to John Stamos, let’s see what The Offspring has in store for us with their music video for “We Never Have Sex Anymore.”
We Never Have Sex Anymore Music Video
So, the music video for The Offspring’s “We Never Have Sex Anymore” features a pair of chimpanzees (presumably a husband and wife) that well…are apparently having marriage issues, and as the title implies, don’t have sex anymore. Why chimpanzees? I have absolutely no idea, but here we are and chimpanzees are the focus of the video. The video opens with the wife cleaning and vacuuming the house as the husband arrives home from work ready with arms wide open for a warm embrace from his wife, to which he is immediately dismissed and left hanging. The video then cuts to The Offspring frontman, Dexter Holland, as he begins with the opening lyrics of the song with a dancer behind him.
The video cuts back and forth between some clips of the husband chimpanzee struggling to….get lucky, for the lack of a better term, and clips of the band performing the song. One of the clips of the chimpanzees shows the wife clapping to turn the lights off, which will be important as we get closer to the end of the video. After the husband chimpanzee wonders where his marriage went wrong, we see him get in his car and it looks like he’s going to work, but instead he goes directly to a gentleman’s club! Within this gentleman’s club, he meets none other than….John Stamos? Man, this video just keeps getting weirder and weirder. Anyway, John’s kicking it back and helps Mr. Chimpanzee out with some cash, and suddenly Mr. Chimpanzee is out on the dance floor and getting hammered. After he’s had his fun, we see Mr. Chimpanzee recklessly drive home as he is very clearly under the influence; he gets home and crawls into bed with Mrs. Chimpanzee as it looks like she tries to start some sort of physical interaction between the two, but Mr. Chimpanzee is having none of it and claps his hands (paws?) to shut the lights off (see, I told you that would make sense later!) and the video ends.
This was a wild ride from start to finish, and it now has me questioning so much about life. Do chimpanzees get married in their own way? Do they have their own marital problems like humans? Is there a chimpanzee version of John Stamos? Maybe I’m getting a bit carried away, but all in all this was a fun video to watch, albeit a tad strange. The Offspring’s latest album “Let the Bad Times Roll” is available now on Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, iHeartRadio, Amazon Music, Pandora, Deezer, and just about any major streaming platform you can think of, and it’s one of my favorites.
