'Hood' video features Arpad Miklos... and a killer song

One of our favorite gay 20-something musical masters, Perfume Genius (singer Mike Hadreas), has just released a new music video for a track from his forthcoming album Put Your Back N 2 It.  The song, "Hood," features our favorite gay 40-something gay porn star Arpad Miklos as the man Hadreas is afraid of showing too much to.  And there is pawing and poking and hugging to be had.  In an interview with Out earlier this month, Hadreas broke down his vision for the video.

"I wanted someone really, really masculine-looking, really male. Because if it's just me and my boyfriend, we're kind of boyish, and they'll just think it's cute or emo or something. But I wanted someone really male-looking to be kind of tender. And I hoped that would make the people that I wanted to make uncomfortable more uncomfortable."  

And as for the rest of us, we're mostly jealous.  

Hadreas' intent for the song was to show that if his lover really knew all there was to know about him, he would most likely leave him—a thought that no doubt lingers in the back of the minds of most anyone in a committed relationship. When asked if keeping secrets and behaving discretely had any place in the modern day relationship, the man known as Perfume Genius responded: "As far as secrets, it's easy to see in other people that they don't need to hide anything, if that's the case.  You can see the entirety of them even if they don't really tell you.  But it's really hard to think that way about yourself."
