Marilyn Manson has released a NSFW (reason: breasts) video for “Slo-Mo-Tion”, which comes off his latest album Born Villain (review). The video is your standard Manson fare: lots of use of lighting for effect, creepy images, and Manson trying to be as odd and strange as possible. And yet, I just can’t get over the feeling that 1) I’ve seen it all before and 2) that it’s just not what it used to be. Maybe I’m getting old and just not into it anymore, but this video did absolutely nothing for me.
In fact, the most telling part for me was 2:38 into the video, when Manson, flanked on the left by [bassist] Twiggy and on the right by a bare breasted woman, is walking down the street and he looks just so…awkward. It’s as though Manson was asking himself, “Really? Am I still really doing this?”
