Who: The Vaccines
What: “All In White”
Produced by: Canada/ Partizan
Label: Columbia Records.
“So guys, what do we want to put in this music video?”
“FIRE!” ”SUPERPOWERS!” “NAKED WOMEN!”
“BLACKED-UP JESUS ON THE BACK OF A HORSE…”
“Maybe if we have time at the end…”
This is how I imagine the conversation must have gone that produced this video. It’s a bizarre mash-up of conspiracy theories, soft-porn and burning s**t (any fledgling super-villain’s wet dream, I’m sure.) It features a dry-ice machine that Bonnie Tyler herself would be proud of, and telekinetic special effects the likes of which haven’t been seen since Roald Dahl’s Matilda showed us the damage one little stick of chalk can do.
Clearly everyone involved is a serious revolutionary, burning arm chairs with abandon and throwing pies in faces like they actually want to do some damage.
While I can’t deny the fact that I like The Vaccines, and I like this song, the video nonetheless leaves me with nothing but the urge to go make some smores with Cadbury’s chocolate. Well, we all revolt in our own way.
