"Miserable" is a song from Lit's album A Place in the Sun. It was the third single released from the album. It also had an accompanying music video directed by Evan Bernard, produced by Keeley Gould, in which the band is portrayed performing the song on and around a huge Pamela Anderson, who wears a white bikini and platform shoes. The video ends with Pamela chasing down and devouring the band members one by one. She starts by eating one member who was standing on her lips. When the band begins to run she chases after them and grabs one member and eats him alive. Pamela then sneaks up behind a third band member who is hiding from her and slurps him up. She then chews him up and spits out his shoe. Finally only the lead singer is left who the giantess picks up tosses into her mouth and swallows him alive. With all the band members eaten the giantess walks away as the video ends
