Mac DeMarco - "Chamber Of Reflection" Video

The video for Mac DeMarco’s “Chamber Of Reflection” starts off with a woman crouching in front of a Ford truck grille wearing a Homer Simpson mask — and it only gets weirder from there. She lays in hammocks, walks down the street, gets on the subway, drinks water from a fire hydrant — all regular things non-Homer-masked people do. Celebrities, they’re just like us! We follow this mopey, dead-eyed Homer throughout Brooklyn as a slowed-down, sludgy version of “Chamber” serenades in the background. Watch the video below.

Salad Days is out now on Captured Tracks.

  1. This guy is a genius, in his twitter he announces this video with a link to a Castle in the Sky trailer ( https://twitter.com/Msldemarco/status/494497067038146560 ) and the YouTube (official video) needs to be played at speed of 1.5 to “match” the album version

    • By failing to mention this video slows down the original song only supports the notion that nobody at Stereogum has listened to “Salad Days”

      The full-speed version of “Chamber of Reflection” is arguably the best song on the album. (Me thinking it’s “Passing Out Pieces” but two of my friends thinking it’s “Chamber of Reflection” being the base sample size for the previous sentence)

      • You right (well, I’m sure others have, but I haven’t). DeMarco just never really clicked with me for whatever reason. Went and listened to Salad Days just now though and I like it but don’t think it’s something I’m going to revisit often. “Chamber Of Reflection” is probably the best song on there and the only other one that really jumped out at me was “Let My Baby Stay,” so I think I prefer it when DeMarco takes things slow. I also think I like the slowed-down version of “Chamber” better than the album one. I can appreciate what he’s doing/why people like him, but it’s just not really my thing.

        This video is great though. Wish I could’ve run into them filming it.

      • “Passing Out Pieces” is one of my favorite songs of the year.

  2. that glazed eyed homer mask is too funny

  3. Only Stonecutters understand what is going on here.

  4. This man, truly, does not give a fuck. And it’s beautiful.
