Canadian Indie rock duo Tegan and Sara have a new album out called Heartthrob, and to celebrate its release, they enlisted Andy Samberg in a video in which they explain to him what makes a heartthrob.

For instance: generosity. Samberg demonstrates this quality by giving the ladies his shoes. Also, creative dressing, which Samberg puts his clothes on backwards, a la Criss Cross.

But perhaps the best moment of the video happens around the 2:30 mark. "I remember getting funny feelings about Madonna in "Truth or Dare," says Sara. "Her body is perfect."

Samberg proceeds to appear in a cone bra.

The album drops tomorrow in the U.S. According to their website, Tegan splits her time between Los Angeles and Vancouver, and Sara lives in NYC and Montreal. This is their seventh studio album after they began playing together in 1995. The two women are twin sisters.
