yeah-yeah-yeahs-zeroYeah Yeah Yeahs’ more populist new material hasn’t yet resulted in choreographed snow-sprinkled dance sequences on floating blocks of ice, but fortunately YouTube user Johnnnayy has created just that scenario so we can all see how amazing it would be.

Not sure what that comment up there means exactly, but it made me LAOFMAOFOLR. It’s in response to Star Pilots’ relentless hookmonster of a pop nugget named “In The Heat Of The Night”. Or, more, accurately, it’s in response to a fan video of the song which features those famously oily volleyball scenes from Top Gun.

Because “In The Heat Of The Night”, for some reason, doesn’t have an official video as yet despite having floated about on the internet for about a year already.

UPDATE: It does now, and you can see it below. It features soapy womens.

Not that it really requires one – it’s not one of those numbers where you’re like “hmm, this euro-dance single is a bit oblique, I require soothing images to ease myself into its unique world”.

Nah. It’s a stomping 80s-worshipping cheesebugger which will dominate branches of TopShop, provincial bowling alleys and – if it gets a video – The Box for the entirety of summer 2009. It’s not officially out on our shores until May 11th, but you can check it out by lowering your line of vision and clicking the play button belowabouts.
