See Indiana Queen’s NSFW Video Shaking Up Country Music

There's a little buzz in the country music world caused by a new video from an alternative country band Indiana Queen. 

[The band] is being lauded for their sexually explicit music video for "I Don't Know What to Do," the latest single off their upcoming sophomore album. Though the band's leader Kevin Thornton is openly gay, the video features two other men who are a real couple from Nashville.

"The song is about those times when you are feeling the sexy magic and the other person isn't," Thornton told The Huffington Post. "My initial inspiration for the video was film noir cowboy and horse fantasy … [My friends] brought so much chemistry it morphed into something else, but I really love the end result." – www.cosmopolitan.com

A cowboy and horse fantasy? I'm not sure I want to know more about that inspiration.  Well, here's the video.  Watch and see what you think.

 

 

 

The Advocate calls the video, which features the men kissing and having sex, "genre-defying," elaborating that cowboy-on-cowboy sex is "not typically seen in the conservative music genre."

Comments on the video have been overwhelmingly positive, ranging from "yay love" to "great song" to the inevitable "yay love is great but nudity is bad!"

Not mentioned anywhere is how patriotic the whole thing feels. Cowboy hats on prairie scenes on country music? This whole thing's inarguably American AF. Enjoy! – www.cosmopolitan.com

So, I guess I missed the sex part.  Cosmopolitan, a magazine that should know about sex, titled its article on the music video craze "People Are Delighted by This NSFW Country Music Video Featuring 2 Cowboys Having Sex."  I see one guy's bare bum three times and for not that long of a period of time, but I think there was just cuddling and kissing going on. Maybe I missed something.

It's a good song with a pretty okay video.  I guess I don't see the WOW factor in it,  But then again, it is country music so I guess showing a man in a harness would have been groundbreaking enough.  And maybe that is a good point.  We don't see it as shocking to have two men kissing and a couple or three crack shots. I think we were more offended and shocked at Kim K's Paper Magazine cover.  My how we all differ.

What are your thoughts Instincters?
