Bright and early this morning, Blender.com went ahead and debuted the second music video from Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights' major label debut, Pardon Me -- but the song the video is for isn't really a new song at all. Nope, "Gypsy Woman," the album's second single, has been JT and Co.'s calling card for some time now, dating all the way back to when the band was playing tiny venues around town instead of, say, headlining New Year's Eve at the Granada Theater, as it will again this year, for the third year running.
Still, it's good to see the song finally get a visual accompaniment, complete with performance footage shot above the South Side on Lamar building -- a favorite to spot to at least one other performer from Dallas who is making waves on the national music scene. And surely, the other visuals in the video are nice, too -- including the video vixen playing Tyler's love interest in the clip, who briefly goes all Tawny Kitaen on some junkyard cars and couches between getting all cozy with the frontman. Think it's payback to one Jenny Wade for all her steamy scenes with Colin Hanks on The Good Guys lately? Perhaps.
Watch the clip and judge for yourself after the jump.
