Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's new video is a love letter to Branson, Missouri

Gather round, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin fans, because it’s time for some wholesome, family-friendly entertainment. The A.V. Club is premiering a new video from the group’s new album, Fly By Wire, and it’s a celebration of the Midwest’s own Christian Las Vegas, Branson, Missouri. SSLYBY is from Springfield, Missouri, a town just about 30 minutes from the decently bright lights of Branson, and has long been a fan of the town and its charmingly quaint entertainment, including acts like Andy Williams and Yakov Smirnoff.


The track featured in the Brook Linder-directed video, “Nightwater Girlfriend,” was inspired by a ticket deal at a Branson water park, and the clip seeks to celebrate the glory of the Branson strip, from the Titanic Museum to the God And Country Theatre. The resulting video is the band’s lighthearted attempt at a ‘90s style Beastie Boys video set in Branson, and though it’s probably too hardcore for the sleepy town, it’s still a pretty apt love letter to the Show Me state’s second biggest tourist town.
