NSFW: Lily Cole is One Promiscuous Girl in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs New Music Video!

If you thought Hester Pryne had it rough in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, just wait until you get a look at the tragic case that is Lily Cole in her first ever music video performance. While shedding every ounce of her angelic persona, the model-turned-actress takes center stage in the Yeah, Yeah, Yeah’s new music video for their latest track,”Sacrilege,” playing the part of a promiscuous small town girl. Make no mistake about it though, this is one love story that won’t be leaving you with a case of the butterflies.

To start, the video opens with a disheveled Lily chained up and surrounded by motley crew of townsmen, evidence— at least to those of us who actually paid attention in our high school English classes— that it wouldn’t be long before the redhead beauty would be burning at the stake like our old friend Hester.  Even as the story progresses in verse narrative, things only seem to get worse for the tragic figure, as it is revealed that each of her tormenters is actually a scorned lover— including everyone from a mechanic to a married housewife to even a priest!  Now, we don’t want to give the whole video away, but let us just say it’s a killer.  After more than a few twists and turns, and yes a few shots of a topless Lily, the talented model leaves us with the type of captivating performance that we’ve come to expect from the blockbuster beauty.  And the fact that it’s all done to the sounds of Karen O’s heart-stopping vocals makes it all the more special.
