In Case You Didn’t Get Fucked Up Enough Last Night

My still hungover-self was flipping channels when I came across an NYC-TV music video lineup. Watching the following video, I was so transported to a world of 90s riffs and green-screened dolphins that I thought, “These guys were SO HIP for their time!”. And then I Googled them: 2007. Snap, I fail.

So here it is, MGMT’s music video for Time to Pretend.

I must admit, I have a soft spot for excessively green-screened music videos. This one is no different. These videos remind me of those American Apparel onesies: Just because they look awful doesn’t mean people don’t think they’re cool. Great other green-screened videos include:

Blur- Girls and Boys
The Gossip – Standing in the Way of Control
The Klaxons – Gravity’s Rainbow
Gnarls Barkley – Run

Okay, so the last one isn’t exactly a green-screened music video per se because it’s well made and tasteful. But JT’s emcee performance is so wiggidy wack I couldn’t resist. Enjoy! I’m off to drink some Urban Detox.
