If you are into dog videos, then the latest music video “Heather’s Invitation” by Canadian quartet Goosebump is just for you. The video is a retro-esque, homemade one that reminds you of the early days of YouTube aesthetics that features the band members Paul Erlichman and Neil Rankin. We see Neil selling his used car to Paul, so he can become a dog chauffeur. Watch below:

In regards to the song, the band explained that “the chorus of Goosebump by Goosebump’s first single, ‘Heather’s Invitation,’ derives from a similar line in Ishiguro’s book called When We Were Orphans. It’s an older guy turning away his adopted daughter’s invitation to come live with her, because he’s prideful and drawn to loneliness. Total pop song material, right? The verse chords are basically the same ELO’s ‘Do Ya,’ which is possibly the dumbest song ever written. Guess our song is middle-brow. Oh well!”

“Heather’s Invitation” is from the band’s upcoming record Goosebump by Goosebump, which will be out on July 6th via Pleasence Records. They have a show coming up:
