While I’d already repeatedly heard Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz’s international hit “Am I Wrong” playing in elevators, gas stations and H&M stores since the beginning of the summer, it wasn’t until I saw the music video that I realized how gay the song was. And I mean this in a good way.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not implying that artists Nicolas Sereba and Vincent Dery are gay themselves, I’m just saying their song is inadvertently very gay. For those of you who haven’t heard the song, here’s the music video:

I’ll get to the visuals in a minute, but let’s take a look at some of the lyrics:

Am I wrong
For thinking out the box from where I stay?
Am I wrong
For saying that I choose another way?
I ain’t trying to do what everybody else doin’
Just ’cause everybody doin’ what they all do
If one thing I know, I’ll fall but I’ll grow
I’m walking down this road of mine, this road that I call home

Yeah, I know. Very generic. These lyrics could apply to just about anything. Follow me, though. Re-read these lyrics from the context of a man struggling with and finally embracing his homosexuality, despite what his family and friends may think. Here’s another verse:

Walk your walk and don’t look back,
Always do what you decide
Don’t let them control your life, that’s just how I feel oh whoa
Fight for yours and don’t let go,
Don’t let them compare you, no
Don’t worry, you’re not alone, that’s just how we feel

Again, I know, its generic and applicable to just about anyone, much like horoscopes. However, a part of me can’t help but imagine this song being played at a Gay Wedding or a triumphant scene in a movie where the gay kid comes out to his homophobic parents and embraces the boyfriend that his family disapproved.
I could be reaching. I do that a lot on Cypher Avenue. But another thing I do a lot is see things that no one else is noticing. namely, the gayness of the music video.
Over the course of five minutes, we see Nico & Vinz arduously traveling through the lush locales of Botswana and Zimbabwe…just to find each other and lovingly embrace at the end.
Very romantic!
Seriously, though. I’m sure this is actually just a scene depicting two buddies reuniting.
But come on…
The small television sets that both of the men hold throughout the entire video seem to only show images of the “male friend” they are looking for. On top of that, the men seem to sing the chorus to each other throughout the entire song:
Am I wrong
For thinking that we could be something for real?
If you tell me I’m wrong, wrong
I don’t wanna be right, right
If you tell me I’m wrong, wrong
I don’t wanna be right


No, you’re not wrong. You two CAN be something real…

Seriously Gay!

There have been plenty of dudes I’ve dated that I said those exact words to!

“Yo, I’m digging you, man. Am I wrong for thinking me and you could do this thing here?” – Nick Delmacy to a few guys in the past

Okay, yes I know. I’m projecting my own perceptions into these attractive, talented young men and their awesome music video. Its like a Rorschach test. I already admitted earlier this year that I’m in “love mode” due to the fact that its 2014 (aka 2/14 aka Valentines Year).

Nico & Vinz have already explained what the song is actually about and its far from anything gay:

The song is actually about going after your dreams despite naysayers?!

Nope, I’m stubborn. I’ll go on believing that “Am I Wrong” is a gay Coming Out and Dating/Marriage anthem and no one can change my mind!
