Goldfrapp – “Happiness” Video

This video made me giggle. It’s reminiscent of Michel Gondry’s stuff, without the dazzle. And since it’s one of my favorite tunes of the year so far, it earns a post here on the ol’ blog. Goldfrapp happens to be on the mind again because I recently worked on a Grey’s Anatomy episode (“Where The Wild Things Are”) which used “Some People” very, very well.

Here’s the video. The only complaint I have is that it uses an edited-down cut of the album version, robbing it of some of it’s subtle production gleam.

    I was amused by this video too, as well as amazed by this guys endurance to be able to jump around for an entire song. Those are some powerful calves. :)

    It’s pretty impressive, although if you look for the cuts, there are a series of clever ones (Alison appears several times in the video.) Still, they must have done a thousand takes.
