This amazing video from director Ohji Inou takes you on a Kubrickian journey through outer space by way of vintage romance novel covers. That may sound like a completely ridiculous concept (and it is) but what’s crazier is how well it actually works. The visuals are executed flawlessly and it all builds up to a fantastic climax where a cacophony of romance novel imagery is sucked into some type of vortex. It’s as awesome as it is baffling.

After coming off that very entertaining David Guetta video just a couple weeks back, we already have another new video from reliably off-the-wall Swedish director Andreas Nilsson, this time for Dizzee Rascal‘s latest single “Goin’ Crazy” with Robbie Williams. The one-shot Quadrophenia-inspired video stars the two British artists as rival Mods and Rockers gang leaders parading down the street in electric mobility scooters for the elderly.

Director Eric Power helms this beautiful stop-motion animated video for Northern Bells “Animal Kingdom” which relies entirely on stylish, meticulously-created paper cut-outs. The clip follows a group of intertwined creatures in a strange, dreamlike world who all yearn for something more but meet the same tragic end.

Earlier this year veteran video director Floria Sigismondi helmed the Tilda Swinton-starring clip for David Bowie‘s “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” and she’s now reteaming with Bowie and bringing along a couple more high-profile actors, Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard. The result is a profoundly weird and visceral filled with dark religious imagery, lots of blood and a brilliantly meta ending.

This clever video from director Aaron Lampert uses rapping puppets and some rad visuals / camerawork / locations to spread environmental awareness for MC Prolyphic & Buddy Peace‘s track “Go Green”. They had me at “rapping puppets”.

Directing duo HARRYS created the impressive video for Toro y Moi’s “So Many Details” last December and they’re back to their blissfully retro ways with this video for Kurt Vile‘s “Never Run Away”. The directors’ intention was to evoke the iconic album covers of 70′s artists like Harry Nilsson and Neil Young and with the vivid, often surreal imagery of Vile playing guitar amid a smoke-filled bus and snowy urban decay, I say they accomplish that splendidly.
