Sweet baby Melovin is back! (And after spending last night reviewing A Dal entries, boy, did I need the emotional release of my little goth vampire.)
Yes, everyone’s favorite goth is back on a cold day in January with a video that features scenes of him wandering lonely through the snow intercut with scenes of beautiful couples wearing the coziest sweaters:
With a title that translates very roughly to ‘With you, with me, and it’s not’, I thought that this was standard Melovin angst – he’s not in love, he doesn’t have a soulmate, he’s destined to wander the snowy steppes of Ukraine (are their steppes in Ukraine?) while the other, more beautiful, and, incidentally enough, straight people get to gaze soulfully into the distance while entiwned with their lovers.
BUT I WAS WRONG!
At the end of the video, Melovin is sitting in his own cozy jumper in some Ukranian ski lodge with all of the couples around him, having painted strange markings on their faces:
And then the camera pulls back to show Melovin’s portrait being painted in front of this group, like he’s the leader of some cult of coziness:
And then – best of all – Melovin actually smirks to the camera. HE WAS ACTUALLY CONTROLLING EVERYONE ALL ALONG.
This is the best cult leader video I’ve seen since Blanche lead a group of flexible supermodels into the woods to slink in and out of cars. Where do I sign up?
Bravo, my favorite Ukranian Hot Topic shopper. You’ve shaken me out of my Eurovision doldrums.
