If you ignore for an instant the controversy surrounding the song itself (official track for the 2012 olympics – I had no idea btw), a departure from the usual progressive rock sound that Muse is famous for, and focus on the video itself, it’s a sheer delight. Sure, there’s a nod to the iconic Film Noir style, with low lighting and cigarette smoke. But there’s also a quasi-futuristic world presented that manages to be past, future and present all at once. At the end of the day though, it’s really about two souls connecting for an all too brief instant, while the rest of the world falls apart. Directed by Anthony Mandler.
