Chromeo – “Come Alive” (Feat. Toro Y Moi) Video

By Tom Breihan / January 30, 2014

Chromeo’s video for “Come Alive,” their dinky synth-funk jam with Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick, takes obvious inspiration from the lovably cheesed-out 1987 movie Mannequin and from the cartoonish videos that held down the era of MTV from around the time Mannequin came out. In the clip, Chromeo’s Dave 1 plays a frustrated casanova, and Bundick plays a janitor, and they both end up romancing plastic figurines who have come to life. Alex Southam directs the goofily fun video; it’s below.

We still have no details on Chromeo’s forthcoming album White Women, but it’s coming soon.
