Blesst Chest's New Video Will Turn Heads...into Hands

On this indulgent day of thanks and forced interactions, enjoy more than just a tryptophanic coma with Blesst Chest's new music video for "Def Gary." The single, which comes off their official debut album Wish You Were There, is another surrealistic endeavor by video directer and 1/3 of Blesst Chest, Jay Winebrenner. The "Def Gary" video features a montage of humans doing run of the mill things, like dancing alone in a basement, in an alternate reality wherein everyone's heads have been very creepily replaced with hands. Just like Blesst Chest's predecessing video, last year's "Sebedad," their newest is alike in its intriguing discomfort. Watch the awkwardly awe-inspiring video below.

 

 

Wish You Were There will be releasing hopefully before the year's end, so keep an eye out for it.
