I scoffed. And now I swoon.
That's right, Grimes (Claire Boucher) released a trailer for her upcoming music video to accompany the brilliant track "Genesis" earlier this week. And I wanted nothing to do with it. But today, I eat crow. Because the music video is pretty amazing.
Things you will see if you watch the Grimes video for "Genesis" (directed by Ms. Boucher, herself):
- Grimes holding a yellow python
- Grimes holding said yellow python in the back of a limo
- Crazy characters that look like they're from a Todd McFarlane comic
- A dude with checkerboard hair coloring
- Swords, Maces, and other assorted weaponry
- A sword on fire
- A dude/female that looks like Prince
- Grimes wearing a fitted cap that says "PUSSY" on it
- Dance-offs in the desert
- Much, much more
And if you're like me, every time you see Claire Boucher, you hear Elvis Presley's "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You"
... wait... no one else does that?
Bravo, Ms. Boucher, you've yet again outdone yourself.
