Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ New ‘Mosquito’ Video Sucks–Literally

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released the bloodthirsty video for “Mosquito,” a graphic clip that will surely leave viewers with an itch that cannot easily be scratched.

For “Mosquito,” the album’s title track, director B. Shimbe Shim trained a camera on a little boy who is quietly being entertained by a flickering television. So memorized by the TV, the boy doesn’t notice the mosquito that lands on his hand and begins to withdraw blood. Under high magnification, a second camera displays a disturbingly close-up view of the blood-sucking action.

By the end of the video, the insect has expanded far beyond belief, having filled itself to the breaking point with the boy’s blood.
