The dudes of the sunny, bikini-clad shores of Miami who form Jacuzzi Boys have brought their quirky sense of humor to their new video for “Automatic Jail.” The song is the second single off of the band’s sophomore effort, Glazin’ (Hardly Art). The video was shot from the perspective of a Shaggy Dog-esque canine following his master to the store until the pooch decides to break free with another dog encouraging him to “DO IT, DUDE!” with bright yellow subtitles. Once he escapes, the dog then proceeds to follow his animal instincts and attack pigeons, sniff other dogs’ behinds and pee on a fire hydrant, all while racing around the city looking at everything and anything—until he comes across some mysterious, fluorescent green goo. Just a few licks from the trippy, mystery puddle of liquid and the dog becomes human. The transformation leaves him with no clothes, so he must quickly find a neighboring clothesline, and a T-shirt off of it gets the attention of a girl—or is she?
 

Though perhaps in a strangely amusing, more furry way, Jacuzzi Boys is sticking to its philosophy of sand, surf and girls—even if it’s the love story of a dog and his seemingly human counterpart. Catch Jacuzzi Boys during CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival at shows October 20-22, because whatever glazin’ is, it looks like so much fun.
