Watch: Tegan and Sara’s Miami Vice-inspired puppetry in ‘Dying to Know’

Canadian sister act deliver a gem of a video

If you’ve been on the lookout for a little Miami Vice-themed puppetry then Tegan and Sara have your hookup.

The Quin sisters dropped a new video for “Dying to Know” off of their fantastic 2016 release Love You to Death and it features them in puppet form cruising through Miami. Yeah, it’s as awesome as it sounds.


“A few months ago I was watching a TV show about the ’80s, and a scene from Miami Vice with Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas came on,” Tegan told Billboard. “They were talking specifically about the episode in which they used the entire Phil Collins song ‘In the Air Tonight,’ almost as if it were a music video.

“I remember thinking how cool it would be to have Sara and I remake the famous scene. Sadly, neither of us can drive, nor did we have the time or funds to reshoot that famous scene in Miami. Instead we tapped director Nathan Boey in Vancouver to reshoot it using puppets! I think it might even be better with us as puppets than if we had been in it ourselves.”

What’s not to love about Tegan and Sara puppets, a miniature Lamborghini, and riding off in a speedboat?
