Video: Gold Motel make bad public access TV good

Posted by Frank

Gold Motel are determined to make our lives more fun. They must be, because they keep coming out with irresistibly lovable tunes and music videos. Take the new video for their most recent single "Cold Shoulders," which premiered on In it, the quintet charmingly channel the spirit of ridiculously bad public access TV variety shows, complete with awkward host, poor quality and cheesy painting instructor (I suddenly have a bizarre urge to watch this). It sort of reminds me of one of the shows produced by my old high school's A/V club, except unlike Gold Motel, the guest band on one of those would have sucked. Watch all of the awkward fun below. And I salute you, Gold Motel, for the continued musical uppers.
