City Slang: Human Eye unveil new video

March 20, 2014

Human eye

The Human Eye, the local garage band led by the inimitable Timmy “Vulgar” Lampinen, unveiled a new video at the Painted Lady in Hamtramck on Wednesday night, for the song “Gettin’ Mean.”

The video sees Vulgar attempting to start a lawnmower before getting bitten by what looks like a plastic praying mantis, and then going through a Kafka-like metamorphosis. He roams the streets (and liquor stores), before eventually having a showdown with an exterminator.

You can see the video here:


In addition, here’s a CMJ piece about the video.

Much like the song itself, the video showcases all that is wonderfully unhinged about Lampinen, but also just how talented he is. The man just think differently to everyone else.
