This is a deceptively simple videos that seems like a stunt — Grimes aka Claire Boucher stealthily shoots a video for herself while attending a motocross stadium event — until you have to piece together how all the other elements fit together. That's when you realize that all the scenes we see her crashing are of the macho variety — motocross, a men's locker room, a football game, some sort of bizarre shirtless roughhousing party —and that maybe Grimes wants us to realize that these hetero men are oblivious to their urges to undress and have forceful contact with each other. Girl Power, for the win. --> watch "Oblivion"
