Today’s offering features a quirky musical vignette from Dunedin band Haunted Love in which librarians epitomise the saying that “Revenge is a dish best served cold”.

I don’t know about you but when I kill gum-chewing patrons it’s always in black and white…

According to the credits, filmed on location at Dunedin Public Library.  Can any other libraries in New Zealand brag that they’ve featured in a music video?


Quite likely you’ve already seen this music video before but perhaps you haven’t seen quite in this way.  Tears for Fears get the literal treatment with the video for Head over heels, set of course…in a library.

Today we discover through the medium of 80s music video that librarians in Africa wear their hair in buns, look severely at people over the top of their coke-bottle specs and wear fussy blouses…just like we do, right?

We’re not in Kansas any more Toto, we’re in the library…

Did anyone else notice this is the second one of these I’ve done where someone brandishes a weapon in the library?  I wonder if I have issues?
