Gnarls Barkley’s last video was a wacky dance party, complete with random Timberlake cameo and alleged seizure-inducing strobes. Their new one couldn’t be more different: It’s more like an indie short film than your typical MTV fare, and you hardly even see the Gnarls guys except for a single quick shot. Check it out below, and click through to the jump for my take:
Am I the only one who found this clip mad disturbing? Not necessarily in a bad way, just sayin’. That hemorrhaging heart that starts walking around and singing in Cee-Lo’s voice? So freaky! (I sense Guillermo del Toro taking notes for Hellboy 3.) Then again, I guess most of us have had conversations that felt like this at some point in our lives. And the video’s creepy/melancholy vibe definitely fits the tune — which is one of my favorites from The Odd Couple, for sure. Just remind me never to go to Gnarls Barkley’s greasy-spoon diner for brunch, okay? But you tell me — what do you make of this video?
