"Black Mirror" Arcade Fire Video- Prettay Prettay Creepy
As if the song itself wasn't dark enough, Butler and company decided to provide us with this gem. Cue the large face emerging from the ocean while TV-headed boat dwellers cling to glowing moonshine bottles and don't forget the Pinocchio-style belly of the whale scene. Cinematographically, the video is intriguing, shot in, you guessed it BLACK and white. I may or may not want to adopt one of the triangle shaped elves (they remind me of Ewoks.) I don't know what the hell is going on in this video, but it is Arcade Fire and they can do no wrong...right?
