Lena Dunham Directs Boyfriend in ‘I Wanna Get Better’ Video
Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff are mixing business with pleasure.
The Girls actress has directed the first music video for her boyfriend’s side project, Bleachers.
The nearly five-minute clip for “I Wanna Get Better” begins with the Fun. guitarist chasing after his girlfriend, who has just dumped him. “Jack,” she tells him, “if you could even begin to examine yourself the way you examine everyone else … be that analytical — judgmental, that’s the word — maybe then we can get somewhere.”
We then see that Jack is a therapist and one by one, his clients sit on his couch, explain their problems … and sing along to the track’s lyrics.
And in the closing scene, Jack’s eccentric patients become his band members.
The debut album from Bleachers — which is set to perform Lollapalooza this August — is slated to be released this spring.
