Despite all the (reasonable) talk about the death of music television, this year has seen some quite remarkable music videos. Matt and Kim’s naked Times Square venture, for example (be sure to watch it til the very last frame).
Then there was the glossy überkitsch of The Sound of Arrows (which I will write about in more detail in the upcoming issue of Spex magazine). However, I somehow don’t believe it can get any stranger than the new vid by Maskinen feat. Marina Gasolina (of Bonde do Rolê-fame). Unfortunately I speak neither Swedish nor Portugese, but I guess you don’t have to, to be amazed/impressed/bewildered by „Dansa Med Vapen“.
So here it is: Swedish Rap, supported by a Brasilian singer, in a video reminiscent of this one particular Italian horror movie.
