Kids

Kelley saw the video for "Kids" by MGMT the other night and knew I'd like it. As always, she was right.

It reminded me of this carnival poster that I had in my bedroom when I was a kid. The clowns in the poster always scared me. Years later I mentioned to my mom how the pictures frightened me. She said, "I know. That's why I put it there."

You've just ruined my night. Before this song had an official video, some hipsters made their own, and it was waaaaay better than this. I just spent a good half-hour trying to find it, though, and apparently some jerks made a montage video to the song that got so popular it's all you can find anywhere. And clips from the video I'm looking for appear in the crappy one, which is all the more maddening.

Fix it.

Clearly you didn't watch the video because I'm pretty sure that a video featuring an infant being scared to tears by monsters grabbing for it is the pinnacle of music video greatness.
