Andy Butler, Hercules & Love Affair: “So after six years of us never appearing in a Hercules and Love Affair video (more by accident than design), I wanted us to appear in the video for “Rejoice”. Rouge Mary is such a ferocious performer so it was kind of a no brainer. We had to capture that energy in this video.
It's MØ vs MØ vs death itself in this dreamlike video inspired by Edvard Munch painting The Dance Of Life.
MØ: “I'm so happy to present this video because it feels very true to the song and to who I am. It was inspired by a painting called ‘The Dance Of Life’ by one of my favorite artists, Edvard Munch. It’s an illustration of three women—one in white, one in red and one in black—and tells a story about three stages of human life: youth, maturity, and old age. I was always drawn to this image as a kid due to its simple symbolism and emotion and have been dying to do a video that could reflect on it. Since ‘When I Was Young’ is all about nostalgia and reflecting on life—especially the past, but also the now and the future—it just seemed like the perfect time to do it." [via YouTube]
Master Of None co-creator Alan Yang directs a genius video that pokes fun at the fact that Friends was an exceptionally white show, by recasting a remake with a who's who of current black stars, including Jerrod Carmichael, Issa Rae, Lakeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Tessa Thompson and Lil Rel Howery.
You know the song, "Can I Sit Next To You Girl" by AC/DC? Pretty sure Bon Scott was talking about somebody imaginative like Kacy Hill, who finds a very productive way to pass the time on the bus. And based on her fantasies, I'm equally sure she wasn't thinking of anybody like the late Mr. Scott.
What starts as a commentary on sexist ass/legs videos, turns into a pomo exploration on Internet overactions, turns into an actual reality as weird as what we've just seen, before turning into a meditation on the loneliness of the creative video director, played by Keith Schofield himself.
Bob Jeusette, director: “The music of The Magician sounds so universal. It is a dream to be able to create a visual world for his music.” The Magician was super happy with the result: “The casting, the colours, the atmosphere ... everything is just right in the video. The locations are chosen so well, can you believe that the entire video is shot in Belgium?
Dance music possesses a guy and a girl as they orgasmically dance around North London.
Thomas Ralph, director: "The idea initially stemmed from the pattern like structure of the song and the 90’s all-night rave culture Vessels are homaging. Our mission was to merge raw, out on the town ‘run and gun’ narrative shooting with a graphic, layered, edit-structure to match with the beat."
