Some videos sometimes make you go “Whaaaa?” and shake you from your cynical torpor.
Such a recent video has been the video for “Rabbit” by Swedish Electro popsters Miike Snow. From the start some pretty acid fried imagery. From the boy/man warlord with a full-on beard and his posse of Amazonian dancehall vixens, to the white rabbits and the use of 2live crews album cover for “As Nasty as they want to be” as some form of Holy Grail religious symbol. It all ends in an explosion of saturated colour and bumping and grinding as they unlock the “secrets” held within the cover.
A bit like Alejandro Jodorwsky, if Jodorowsky discovered late 80’s rap music instead of Eastern Mysticism….
