Alice In Chains - "Hollow" Video

When we first wrote about Alice In Chains’ new single “Hollow,” the song was paired with a cheap but inventive fan-made Instagram video — which some viewers erroneously believed to be the track’s official clip. But no! In fact, the “real” video is much worse. It’s like one of those movie theme-song videos, which just string together disjointed scenes from the film, except there is no movie tie-in here, and the non-movie we’re watching looks like hackwork. It tracks the slow psychological erosion suffered by a Major Tom-esque astronaut who succumbs to loneliness and monotony … and also throws in plot elements from Alien. I honestly wonder if the song had previously conjured up images even remotely similar to these in the minds of any listener (besides the video’s director). Baffling. Check it out.

  1. Is that Paul Ryan?

  2. did Alice In Chains just rip off Tom Delonge?

  3. Great video and good song that I’m sure will be ignored without payola.

  4. “Hollow” = oooohhhhh, I’ll bet it’s a moody song with trite lyrics about life being ‘empty’. see they’ve decided not to progress beyond banal early 90′s style angsty lyrics.

  5. For fans looking to score tickets before the general public. Head on over to http://aliceinchains.artistarena.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=1 for access to the pre-sale tickets. ENDS TODAY!
