As we come towards the inevitable end of ‘The Inevitable End’ album project (this makes us very sad because, as far as albums go at least, this IS the inevitable end for Röyksopp), we have the opportunity to celebrate the utter brilliance of the Norwegian outfit just one more time, with the video for their latest single ‘I Had This Thing’.
Cue couple in love, couple fighting, woman storming off, driving and texting. Never a good combination.
But (and perhaps this is the chaps’ way of commenting on our addiction to technology) she’s so consumed with her phone and the SMS conversation she finds herself in (just PICK UP THE PHONE AND TALK, YOU MORONS!) that she fails to realise that the world’s being invaded by spacecraft and that an apocalypse is imminent.
Not ’til it’s too late and she’s trapped in her car. That said, it IS an old Volvo, so she’ll probably survive. Hopefully then she’ll upload the footage to YouTube so we can all ‘lol’ all over it.
