Miley Cyrus Destroys the City in Neon Trees "Pop Psychology" Cartoon — VIDEO
Neon Trees knows what the people want. Whether you're a fan of their music or not, you can't deny that your life has been suffering from a distinct lack of cartoon versions of your favorite pop stars. It's the thing you didn't know you wanted until someone gave it to you. The band's latest album, Pop Psychology, is available on iTunes and there was apparently no better way to promote it than by making a video featuring cartoon versions of Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and more. The video is called "Adventures in Pop Psychology" and it is the best thing that you're going to see all day.
The video was made by lead singer Tyler Glenn, who came out of the closet in March 2014. The band is also adapted into cartoon form, performing at a show in front of an audience of people glued to their smart phones. No matter how hard the band plays, or how good their music is, everyone is "lost in the cyber jungle". It turns out that everyone has a very good reason for not paying attention, as Beyoncé soon points out. Someone is destroying the city on a wrecking ball. You get three guesses as to who and the first two don't count.
Since the album is called Pop Psychology, naturally some of the stars make direct references to something they're most famous for in pop culture, just in case you didn't catch who they were supposed to be.
If "I Knew You Were Trouble" didn't get stuck in your head the instant you saw Swift's thought bubble, then you must have thrown your car radio out the window after the first time they overplayed your favorite song. It's a pretty smart idea, come to think of it.
Perry is dressed in the cheetah bikini that she wore for the "Roar" music video. You can even see her grass skirt as she leans over to show her phone to Swift.
Cyrus is destroying the city because she's notoriously into construction and demolition. Or because "Wrecking Ball" was one of her most memorable videos for more reasons than one. At least she's wearing clothes in Neon Trees' interpretation.
