Friday! The weekend is almost upon us! So to kick things off, I wanted to go a little more surreal by choosing eclectic Icelandic singer Björk and her video for “Army Of Me”, which was directed by famed music video guru Michel Gondry. The song comes from her 1995 album Post. The video is a surreal story of a truck breaking down, a gorilla dentist, a gigantic diamond, and more.
In an interview, Björk commented on the gorilla dentist, stating, “When Michel gets his strokes of genius and, in the video for ‘Army of Me’, wants a dentist that’s a gorilla to find a diamond in my mouth, some people call it nonsense. But it’s probably the most realistic way of expressing what situation I’m in – all these people trying to take things away from me, and the gorilla finding a diamond that I don’t know I have and then stealing it. ‘Army of Me’ is so much about me actually learning that I have to defend myself. I have to stand up and fight the fucking gorilla. Once I’ve got the diamond and I run away with it, it becomes massive ‘cos it’s mine. But if the gorilla had kept it, it would have gone really tiny. That’s surrealism for me.”
You can watch the video below and make sure to pick up Björk‘s Post via iTunes.
