Skeletons, a talking dolphin, a poker game, a crying rock, books by “Daryl Oates” and “John Hall,” an elderly man in tighty whities, an egg pyramid, Andrew VanWyngarden as Pinocchio, and Henry Winkler (I think) consoling a teenage soccer player are some of the non-sequitor scenes you’ll see in MGMT’s video for “Your Life Is A Lie,” the first single from MGMT. And I’m barely giving anything away because director Tom Kuntz crams a ton of ideas into the two minute clip, which is also the year’s weirdest lyric video. It’s begging for the “10 Weirdest Gifs From MGMT’s New Video” treatment. Maybe you can give Buzzfeed a hand and share some in the comments.
MGMT is out 9/17 on Columbia.
