It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a short film! It’s a music video! No, it’s…a perfume commercial! But also sort of a short film and a music video. To advertise their new Kenzo World fragrance, fashion brand Kenzo enlisted the great Spike Jonze to direct a bonkers dance video set to “Mutant Brain,” a new song from Spike Jonze’s brother Sam Spiegel, producer Ape Drums, and Jamaican dancehall MC Assassin. Reminiscent of Jonze’s masterpiece of a video for Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon Of Choice,” the clip features Margaret Qualley, aka Andie MacDowell’s daughter, aka Jill Garvey on The Leftovers, busting out some gonzo demonic-possession dance moves. Also laser beams. Watch below.
