Pitta Putta! Hulu unleashed a music video for “Angel in Flip Flops,” a song performed by Charles Haden-Savage (Steve Martin) in the true crime comedy Only Murders in the Building. It’s a trippy animated affair, perfectly complementing the song’s old-school sound. 

The world first hears “Angel in Flip Flops” in episode four of Only Murders in the Building‘s second season, “Here’s Looking at You…” Lucy (Zoe Margaret Colletti) visits Charles, revealing her mother remarried and Lucy misses him. We see a flashback of Charles playing “Angel in Flip Flops” on the acoustic guitar while belting out the tune with young Lucy.

Mabel (Selena Gomez) and Oliver (Martin Short) discover a record of the song among Charles’s belongings, which features young shirtless Charles sitting cross-legged on a breezy beach with a guitar on his lap. Oliver pokes fun at Charles while our Brazzos star says that “Angel in Flip Flops” became a massive hit in 1989 Germany until the Berlin Wall came down. 

We see the romance unravel between Charles and his unnamed angel whose kisses “taste like Pop Rocks.” This angel shoots rainbow beams out of her eyes! We hear all about how she loves a “man like him” and how she wipes away his tears.

Lastly, the video ends with Charles’s angel taking him by the hand and flying him to heaven. It’s a delightful animated palette cleanser to start your week if you need a whimsical video to banish the Monday blues. I feel better already.
