Sure, it’s Monday, and Mondays suck. But I think we can all celebrate being near the end of the worst day of the week with a little slice of complete insanity, can’t we?
I was thinking of posting this new music video from Coheed and Cambria with the headline “This is the best Batman v Superman trailer yet!” but I didn’t want anyone to miss it, thinking it was merely more film footage. So please do watch this tale of a Times Square Batman and Superman meeting for the first time, and…
REO Speedwagon were a staple of super-squishy soft rock in the 80s, and I guess they were among the pioneers of high-concept music videos. But yeesh. I had never fully realized how skin-crawling their video for “I Can’t Fight This Feeling” actually is. Yeeeeeesh.
“Voodoo in My Blood” is the latest single off Massive Attack’s new Ritual Spirit EP. In this Ringan Ledwidge-directed video, Gone Girl actor Rosamund Pike encounters a floating orb in a subway station with ill intentions.
This new music video from the electro-rocker band Saverne is a great blend of Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic stuff with psychedelic strangeness. It reminds me a bit of The Gone Away World by Nick Harkaway.
“Wide Open” is the latest music video from the British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers. In this Dom & Nic-directed video, dancer Sonoya Mizuno (who many of you will remember from Ex Machina) slowly morphs into a synthetic version of herself.
For some reason, Rick Springfield decided to freeze himself in the 1980s, only to be accidentally woken up in 2016. It’s a glorious future with strange aliens and dance moves.
Seriously, Hollywood keeps making weird-ass fairytale movies. And they really ought to take a note from this insane new Taylor Swift video for “Out of the Woods,” which does for fairytales what her “Bad Blood” vid did for action movies.
You know what your day is missing? Existential angst from the appendix. Which is what “Body of Songs: The Appendix” provides, in the form of an anthropomorphized appendix singing and dreaming about being cut out.
Weird Al made a splash with his latest album Mandatory Fun last year, and he’s been on the road ever since. He’s just released his latest music video that compiles all of his wacky concert intros.
‘If I Move To Mars’ is the latest song from New Zealand artist Thomas Oliver, and it comes with a great video of an astronaut jamming out as he spins away in orbit. The world needs more Apollo-styled guitars.
In PilotPriest’s video for their song The Last Goodbye, an astronaut goes off on a desperate chase after her companion jets off into space.
This video for “Sound & Color” by the Alabama Shakes is just a brilliant tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, including lots of one-point perspective shots and some lovely white corridors. And it has an amazing storyline about an astronaut who wakes from cryogenic sleep to discover an unpleasant truth.
For Red Nose Day, Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage is singing a hilarious blues jam about the fact that he’s “Still Going Strong” after Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon and so many other great characters have died. Basically, he’s paid the cost to be the boss. [h/t Frank!]
Here it is — the video for “Pretty Girls” by Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea, which is supposedly inspired by the classic movie Earth Girls Are Easy. The best part is where the women say things like “Your alien powers are like totally radical” to Iggy, who’s a visiting alien who just wants to party.
Musical artist Panda Bear — a.k.a. Noah Lennox from Animal Collective — is renowned for creating some of the most daring and experimental electronic music today. His new animated video for "Boys Latin" captures these psychedelic moods perfectly.
Shit, you guys — this video for Daphne Guinness' song "An Evening in Space" is so great. It's just nonstop weird fashions and bodypaint and decadance and spaceships, with a very David Bowie-esque sound and feel. Oh, and it's probably NSFW, so watch out.
Western cyberpunk creators borrowed a lot from Japanese culture in the 1980s — but judging from this video by J-Pop diva Anri, it went both ways. Watch as our heroine puts on her mirror shades and hacks into cyberspace, only to be pursued by a dark avatar.
I'll cut to the chase: Around the 1:50 mark in this video, Ariana Grande launches missiles from her breasts at a robot. That would be enough, but her whole attitude is like "Yawn, just another day on Mars." She even tosses her hair and shakes her head while she does it!
