Well, well, well.
Placebo have joined forces with American Psycho shock-author Brett Easton Ellis for their latest video. If you don't know much about Brett Easton Ellis let's just say his early work focused upon sex, violence and more notoriously cheese and rats in the distorted, selfish and superficial world of late 1980's Manhattan. Delicious.
The song seem to point to the isolation brought about through the explosion of "social" networking but the video is something else altogether.
A complex, slickly shot, highly stylised Whodunnit? that explodes one crucial moment through a series of slow motion perspectives! The band briefly appear like ghosts beamed down from the teletext satellite to have a quick look around. W.T.F.?
It's great to look at but can anyone really figure it out?
Too Many Friends' is taken from the new album 'Loud Like Love' released on the 16th September 2013.
