If realtors sold the internet – Context. Context. Context.

Ratatat has a new album. I like these guys, but I don’t love em. This video though, scores big points with me. The rumor is they just used getty stock footage for the whole thing. I don’t know if that’s wholly the truth, but I do love the idea that they took this sacchrine nothingness and turned it into something nice and subversive. I believe there was a website a while ago that just featured creepy stock footage of people smiling, and duplicated it on the screen till it felt supremely skin crawling.

and for further viewing, i recommend Die Fledermaus’s World of Chemistry vid.

Thanks @cwiggins for the first find on this one.
