Naked wizard tasered at Coachella (Yes, tasered. Video NSFW.)
The video for the Sigur Rós hit “Gobbledigook” is one of my favorite things right now. I loved the song the first time I heard it, and when I saw the video I was blown away by the how perfectly the two fit together. If you’re not familiar with it, the video features a number of young men and women frolicking nude in various outdoor settings. A couple of the scenes are very slightly sexual, but there is nothing explicit or pornographic about the video. It’s one of the most uplifting and life-affirming pieces of art that I’ve seen in a long time, and I don’t think it would have the same sense of innocence if the participants were clothed. The nudity is crucial in conveying the mood of light-hearted joy that permeates the song.
