Arcade Fire “Afterlife” Live Music Video Directed by Spike Jonze

Arcade Fire Afterlife Live at the Youtube Awards

Spike Jonze has done it again! Breathing new life into awards shows by directing a live music video for Arcade Fire and a million other things at the recent YouTube Music Awards (that nobody watched). The slow reveal of the award show itself is perfect. Loved Greta Gerwig in Frances Ha, and she does a great job here.

Did any of you watch the award show? What did you think? It was really rocky at times but it was also kind of brilliant. From the Tyler the Creator performance to the Lena Dunham short, there was an energy to it all that Saturday Night Live and late night talk shows just don’t have. If you missed it you can watch the whole show here.

Watch “Afterlife” below! Props to the camera operator!
