Jónsi's New Video Establishes Our Sigur Rós-Marilyn Manson Connection

Alright, so we were sitting here watching this clip for Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi’s “Go Do,” and we came to a heavy realization: how much does Jónsi look like Marilyn Manson in the video for “The Beautiful People” here? Seriously, between the pale-white face paint, the herky-jerky, sped-up camera footage, and the quasi-bondage gear, there’s not much separating the perpetual shock-rocker from Iceland’s falsetto-pop master. Well, maybe there are a few differences — for one, if “Go Do” was a Marilyn Manson video, we’re pretty sure all those birds fluttering around Jónsi would have their heads torn off or something. Also, Jónsi’s music is, you know, enjoyable.

Check out the video for “Go Do” (via Pitchfork TV) above — as well as the clip for Manson’s “The Beautiful People,” for comparison’s sake. Jó’nsi’s Go comes out April 6 on XL.
