Chromeo - "Come Alive" video

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.

  1. I love this

    • I agree – this is definitely something worth loving. However, I might suggest that future expressions of love might have more of an impact with an exclamation point. Let me illustrate:

      I love this!

      No thanks are necessary, but I will gladly accept up-votes in lieu of cash.

      Your friendly neighbourhood grammarian.

  2. A Janitor is not a Department-store manager.

  3. I think with “Get Lucky” having such mainstream success last year Chromeo is in great position for the masses to recognize their genius.
