La Roux is bringing the hamburger phone back. In the music video for “Kiss and Not Tell,” La Roux’s Elly Jackson stars in an ’80s-style infomercial as callers chat on playful telephones, ranging from the classic hamburger to colorful rotary phones.
And that phone number in the faux infomercial? It’s real: Call the number and Jackson will urge you to “press 1 to get down,” which will lead you to a recording of “Kiss and Not Tell,” or “press 2 to leave a cheeky message.” If only all infomercials were this fun.
La Roux’s latest album, Trouble in Paradise, was released in July.
