Camera Obscura tour, release video so cloying it should have Zoey Deschanel in it

Scottish indie popsters Camera Obscura (they are not twee. I do not like "twee" music.) are touring North America in support of their recently released album, My Maudlin Career. They're on 4AD now, which is cool, because I like 4AD. But here's what I don't like--their new video for the single "French Navy." Look at these people. They're having so much fun, going on vacation everywhere, acting goofy and all French New Wave-y. Pshaw. Have fun, kids. Love like yours only tempts swine flu. Although really, the guy is a little too Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lookin' for my tastes, so why the hell not, I wish you all the best in your idle rich jetset romance.
