We've been seeing a lot of people on regular old rollerskates rolling around New York lately, so it seems that a sport that has become the domain of weird guys who hang around bike trails and empty wading pools in the winter actually might be on the upswing again. Not that M83 are America's Zeitgeist or anything, but what if the "Kim & Jessie" video is the beginning of a new era of rollerskating? Pretty soon inline skaters are going to be pushed away by girls like the ones in this video, wearing pink uniforms and totally taking over the track every day. For now though, let's enjoy the innocence of another M83 video that reminds us of the '80s for no real reason at all.
