    Gotta love dystopian imagery. I love it when the visual narrative of a music video gives a song which I would otherwise find uninteresting a certain level of depth.

    • What happened to the other video for this song?? I preferred it. I’ve been searching all over the internet but it seems to have disappeared… shame.

  • Joel

    Beautiful.

    But yes, definitely weird. I love Royskopp.

  • Hmmmmmmmm apocalypse….my favourite.

  • Ramona

    I think it’s too photographic… Some scenes are there just because they look good, they don’t mix well with eachother and don’t even build a story. I guess we let us impressed of things too shallow these days. The song is very nice, though.

  • Kris di

    Though I very much enjoy the strange and apocalyptic feel, a part of me can’t help but take offense that all but one of the unsettling images of distorted faces seem to use people of color. I don’t like the sinking suspicion that it was intended to help induce a feeling of dread.

  • sick mark

    i don’t think it’s apocalyptic, it looks as dilapidated as eastern europe at the moment, and i think that’s it’s merit. plus, how more present can you get-they’ve got spraybooth tees!

  • SWIN

    Great video !

  • uh? I’m so lost. But I love the dog. He’s pretty :D

    • kaylajayne
