Phillips Phunny: “We’ve Got To Break Up” Song

This couple has gone to extraordinary lengths to tell their friends, and the rest of the world, why their five-year relationship is coming to an end.

Jonathan Mann and his girlfriend Ivory put the reason for their break-up to music: he wants kids and she doesn’t it.

You want to find this couple annoying because of the studied, scruffy aesthetic and because they made a video about their breakup.

But in fact they are lovable and actually remarkable.

Partly because of the total absence of drama and bitterness. Partly because of their obvious underlying decency and love. Partly because the simple equation of their breakup just seems like an immutable fact, stated so straightforwardly and simply that it doesn’t leave room to take sides or hate either of one of them.
