The prisoner's girlfriend, the transvestite man mopping up his flooded apartment, the older gentleman in the jacuzzi, the lady at the drive-in movie, the girl consoling her friend... whatever the vignette, there is something just out of shot getting their rapt attention.  

In Joel Kefali's cool and drily witty video for Leisure's Got It Bad, the camera continually moves, wiping across each scene, inviting the viewer to absorb the moment, then moving into the next portrait. Each character is skilfully sketched - we'll just never know what's distracting them.
