Tom Goss has created an ode to the nerdy bears of the world.
In his latest music video, for "Nerdy Bear," the gay singer rhapsodizes about a particular queer tribe that loves video games, Dungeons & Dragons, and ice cream sandwiches.
"Nerdy bear, behind the glasses you a dirty bear," Goss croons to the object of his affection. The music video is also notable for queering classic video games; at one point, he kisses the nerdy bear, dressed as Mario, in drag as Princess Peach. There's even a joke about turnip purchasing in Animal Crossing.
Goss is an outspoken advocate against fatphobia in the LGBTQ+ community. And his music, like "Round in All the Right Places" and the viral hit "Bears," often celebrates men of size.
