They do.

Take five to check out director Camille Henrot's video for Joakim's "Lonely Hearts." Cool song, hypnotic vocals. The video is made up of old home movies from upper-crust weddings. It does well to present the expanse of emotions that brides and grooms must feel on the Big Day. Pfork rightly points out, "The scenes mostly focus on the brides... flashing looks of nervousness and worry, cracks in their smiles."

Now that's a provocative thesis: wedding = eternal bond = lonely heart?
