Apparently, I’m a sucker for LCD Soundsystem videos involving puppets/Legos/inanimate objects that talk. Because first, it was this video with Kermit belting out “New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down.” Then, it was this Muppets video that redeemed their song “Dance Yourself Clean.” (Of course, cutting about 5 minutes off that song would have redeemed it for me as well, but that’s another post.)
Now, Legos have come to the rescue, resurrecting what is arguably LCD Soundsystem’s best song, “All My Friends.”
With lyrics like:
You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan
And the next five years trying to be with your friends again
And if you prefer your crisis in its original form, here’s the official video. But I’ll say this – can humans ever really express the complex emotions that Legos can?
