My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #78

#78: "Psychosis Safari" - The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster
Release Date: 2003
Director: Edgar Wright
Fun Fact: The video was directed by Edgar Wright, the director behind Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End and the TV show Spaced!
By the way, if you get the new album by The Prodigy, check out "Rise of the Eagles" - it's a cover version of this band!!

Anyways, yeah. I don't know if you've heard this band, but for me, this was the most underrated British band of the Noughties. Unfortunately, they've disbanded now but I loved them so much. Such a firecracker of a band.

This video, directed by the awesome Edgar Wright, plays on the old 3D glasses trick really well. When there's no wearing of the 3D glasses, the band look as "normal" as they can. Put the glasses on and you see massive skulls everywhere, beams coming out of the band member's eyes, lots of green screening and much more. In the end it gets so bad that their (amazing) car catches fire and turns into a phoenix! It's just a great video, one you really should see if you haven't before. And if you like the song, I beg of you, check out their other stuff!

Here's the video for your enjoyment!
