I always thought summer was party season, but apparently, it’s actually fall. And that’s perfect, because Daddy (yes, that Daddy, AKA James Franco’s band that released a dildo-filled music video) in collaboration with visual artist, Yiyang Cao, just released their video for Martin Van Etten’s “Lime Green Dress” remix—and it makes us wish we could go back to high school, just to dance to it at our suburban prom. Though the video recalls shadowy memories of pre-school dance nerves to the beat of a hopeful ‘80s synth, Cao hoped to recreate a “distorted version version of the original high school drama, in which the narrative unfolds in a much darker and inaccessible universe.” Juxtaposed with Van Etten’s hypnotic recreation of Daddy’s saccharine anthem, “Lime Green Dress” brings back all of our favorite teenage moments—even if they’re only from ‘80s and ‘90s movies.
