Girls' "Vomit" Video: A Haunting Tour of S.F. in a Cherry-Red Mustang

The main character of Girls' new video

Who knew that Girls' Christopher Owens and J.R. White were gearheads?

Not us: We were surprised as all hell to find that the the band's clip for "Vomit" -- the epic first single off its upcoming album -- is largely a love-poem to a cherry-red '60s Mustang. The opening minutes of this video have more chrome porn than you'll find in an entire Sunday afternoon of Speedvision. After those seductive initial shots, Owens takes the car out for a haunting nighttime spin through S.F., driving through various street tunnels, sketchy Tenderloin intersections, and North Beach, presumably looking for someone in the callous urban jungle.

What's the point of the vid? Hard for us to say -- the only one Owens seems to find is his bandmate at the end, and they go tearing off for another spin in that beautiful car. But it's all fun to look at, at least:

Girls' new album, Father, Son, Holy Ghost, is out Sept. 13 on True Panther. The band headlines Great American Music Hall on Saturday, Oct. 8, and Sunday, Oct. 9.

Most teens would love to have the sports car with the big V8, 500 horsepower engine but this is not the safest choice for the teenager. Kids are going to speed anyway. There is no need in putting all that power and speed under the hood and in their hands.

If you cannot afford a new vehicle, remember that most used cars over 3 or 4 years old do not come equipped with the latest safety features. Keep this in mind if you must choose a used vehicle to match your budget.

It's safe to bet, most teenagers would like to hear the advice that a new car is better than a used. And you may find that it is the best investment you can make. If you can afford a new car, your teenager will most likely be safer.
