Interesting facts and trivia about The Less I Know The Better. By Songfacts®.

This song is about the bitter sweetness of unrequited love. It recounts that all-too familiar tale of a love triangle where the girl that Tame Impala mastermind Kevin Parker is pining for has got involved with another guy called Trevor.

According to Kevin Parker, the song "shouldn't be on a Tame Impala album because it has this dorky, white disco funk."

Shot by the Spanish directors Canada (Justice, Phoenix, Scissor Sisters), the video is a technicolor trip. It has the high school star basketball player in love with the pretty cheerleader. However it flips the generic school love triangle by having the girl hooked up with the team's gorilla mascot, who is naturally called "Trevor." Spanish actress Laia Manzanares plays the cheerleader in the clip. She is also known for playing the role of Ukrainian student Oksana Casanoves in the Spanish television series Merlí.
