Video: MGMT, "Congratulations"







So apparently videos featuring grotesque monster-puppets slowly dying while their human counterparts look on affectionately are becoming kind of a thing. After Yeasayer's "Madder Red" video with Kristen Bell got the ball rolling a week or two ago, we've now got the spot for the title track off of MGMT's "Congratulations". It features the guys wandering through the desert, Gerry-style, while their ambling bird/dinosaur friend gradually loses appendages. Are we the only ones concerned that, if this trend continues, the lo-fi take on the style is just going to be videos of actual animals actually dying? Probably won't happen, but, still, it'd be weird, right?
