Mae Muller 'Therapist' by Chloe Hughes
Chloe Hughes directs a Loony Tunes-inspired video for Therapist, full of tongue-in-cheek humour and vintage animation.
Mae Muller plays the role of an underappreciated girlfriend, dragging herself through various situations to try and appease her apathetic boyfriend. He dreams of weed and pizza. She dreams of a Prince Charming who is the antithesis of her current lover. They're a match made in Hell, and Mae is trying to pull herself out of it.
Romantic cinematography and blown out highlights represent an ideal world where things are just right, and it's a great juxtaposition to the truth she is living day-to-day. Mae's performance is both hypnotic and relatable, and you can't help but roll your eyes for her as she battles with the manchild by her side.
The addition of the cartoon segments scattered throughout the video is reminiscent of the slapstick humour found in early animation, and represents the artist's internal monologue.
And it was actually possible (and legal) to take your boyfriend out with an anvil and start afresh, Mae Muller would clearly be first in line.
