Exclusive: Crooked Fingers' new "Bad Blood" video was inspired by Van Halen

Please enjoy this new video for Crooked Fingers' "Bad Blood," from the band's 2011 album Breaks In The Armor. Enjoy it extra with the following knowledge: It stars Mike Lust, who's both the singer for the band Tight Phantomz and the sound engineer on all of the A.V. Undercover records, as the grown-up version of the kid from Van Halen's 1984. Also: The video was directed by Jamie Fleischel, whose company is responsible for A.V. Undercover, Pop Pilgrims, and other exciting A.V. Club video series. Also, Crooked Fingers is awesome.
