Buzzy Brooklynites TV On The Radio are back with a wonderfully bizarre new video, "Golden Age"...and perhaps not since the golden age of the Village People have I personally witnessed such a fabulous use of exotic costumes, gratuitous rainbow graphics, and dancing police officers.
Prepared to be dazzled (and to do the "YMCA" alphabet-formation disco dance, retooled as "TVOTR") right now:
Of course, as awesome as TVOTR's video is, it's not entirely
original. Compare and contrast it to, say, George Michael's self-parodying cop clip for "Outside," here:
Or to the frolicking farm animals in Swedish pop trio Alcazar's cult classic, "Crying At The Discoteque":
Or, of course, to the Village People themselves:
But anyway, kudos to macho men TV On The Radio for being secure enough with their sexuality to make a video like this. You can't stop their music!
