Arctic Monkeys “Fluorescent Adolescent” Video

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

The recently released video for Arctic Monkeys‘ “Fluorescent Adolescent” brings a couple of unusual thoughts to mind. I’ve never been one to have an outlandish fear of clowns but when they’re kicking the bloody hell out of your friends, all the while grimacing, I can’t help but feel like the last thing I want to see today is a set of big floppy shoes approach me. I can’t imagine what the director had in mind when drafting the story board for the video; the setting is almost as though The Warriors continued onto the next generation with only a gang full of clowns surviving.
