Amazing Music Videos : Weapon of Choice by Fatboy Slim

Now that MTV, Much Music, MusiMax, and Music Plus seem to be more interested in “reality” TV shows than music videos, I thought I’d add a new category to my blog and post about the coolest, most artistic and memorable videos of all time. In my opinion, of course… please feel free to share your own thoughts! But I don’t think you’ll disagree with this one, “Weapon of choice”.

What a concept : watching Chistopher Walken dancing alone in a hotel, in a swift business suit. There’s something cool and eerie about it, or is it Christopher Walken who’s cool and eerie? In any case, kudos to Spike Jonze (Being John Malcovitch, Adaptation, etc.) for giving us this insane award winning video! And kudos to Christopher Walken and his awesome moves!

Apparently the “flying” scene was the hardest to film, and it’s the least interesting IMO. No flying is needed, I like the original concept, reminiscent of Hitchcock episodes, where something creepy could happen out of nowhere, in what otherwise seemed like an ordinary day.

I might add another Fatboy Slim video to this list, can you guess which one?…

Enjoy!
