That Broken Bells video I told you about is here. It’s no Gaga-rotesque masterpiece, but I like it. Turns out that those “difficulties” Mercer hinted about start with some kind of interstellar EZPass.
Makes me think at first of that scene from La Locataire when Polanski says, “If you cut off my head, what would I say? ‘Me and my head’ or ‘Me and my body?’ What right has my head to call itself me?” But then, somewhat disappointingly (and therefore ironically?), it turns into kind of Twilight Zone cliche.
I sort of like how it plays on Mad Men, with the Draper stand-in fantasy offering a martini that never quite reaches her grasp, but I think it would have worked better if the setting had been a bit more 1960’s “space-age” retro.
What do you guys think?
