Watch A 32-Minute Documentary On Nine Inch Nail’s “Closer” Music Video

closernineinchnailsbanner

For those of you who want to feel really old, it’s been 19 years since the release of the classic Nine Inch Nails album The Downward Spiral. Yeah, 19 years. A baby born that year is now either in college or getting ready to go there. Let that sink in for a moment and then come over to my place where I have box upon box of tissues so that we may weep together.

In celebration of this milestone, we want to point you to a fantastic mini-documentary that focuses on Mark Romanek’s now infamous “Closer” music video. Romanek says about the song that, “…it’s probably the most amazing piece of music I’ve ever been given to make a video for…“. The documentary was compiled and edited by How To Destroy Angels member/visual editor Rob Sheridan. Give it a watch below.

    I knew there was a lot of backstage filming during the shoot, but I had no idea they condensed it (I think it was over 6 hours) with having the voice over. How the hell did this pass me by all these years??
