Franz Ferdinand - "Evil Eye" video

Franz Ferdinand’s gruesome, genuinely disgusting video for the Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Actions song “Evil Eye” feels like what might happen if someone made a supercut of all the nastiest moments from Lucio Fulci’s ’70s cheapo Italian horror movies. The grainy video is all disconnected images that seem engineered to turn your stomach: Eyeballs floating in swimming pools, loving closeups of limb-hackings, entrails spilling on sidewalks. Also, frontman Alex Kapranos has apparently grown a Vincent Price mustache for the occasion, which is a nice touch. The whole thing is presented with a fair amount of morbid humor, and it’s pretty fine, but don’t do like me and click play immediately post-breakfast. The veteran music-video director Diane Martel — who, thanks to her videos for “Blurred Lines” and “We Can’t Stop,” is having a titanic year (and who also did one of history’s greatest music videos) — is the party responsible. Check it out below.
