SF Singer Myles Cooper Has the Weirdest Taste in Boyfriends Ever
Myles Cooper is a San Francisco-based musician with a Youtube username that sums up our feelings about his video, "Gonna Find Boyfriends Today": Imsoooconfused. After multiple viewings of the video, and constant reassurances that we're completely sober, it still is a mind-boggling piece of work. And though we want to pull out every journalistic trick in the book and cleverly describe the minute details of this foray into the weird, the only thing that surfaces is a resounding WTF.
If we were going to try to assign words to the insanity, "Gonna Find Boyfriends Today" could be described as an, ahem, enlightening video for singles who have been looking in all the wrong places. Because, apparently, in the inner reaches of Myles' mind, boyfriends are ripe for the picking.
"I need you to look around and find yourself a cutie," Myles' decapitated heads prods us from inside a moon.
He sings: "It doesn't matter what you wear/It doesn't matter if you've got money/We'll find guys to buy us drinks/And tell us that we're young and funny."
And with that, our sagacious dating guru is off to leave his mark on multiple boys. On first impact, he seems greedy. But this feeling of indignation quickly melts away when you consider that infidelity is probably the least of Myles' problems. That's because Myles' ideal boyfriends are -- evidently -- puppets who caress his chest, Cat in the Hat peanuts, dancing strawberries, Precious Moments choirboys and a woman who looks like Mo'Nique.
