Music Video of the Day: Creeper by Islands (2008, dir. ???)


I think I’d have an easier time trying to explain the video for Lullaby by The Cure with its spider-man on ceiling than this one.

Lullaby by The Cure (1989)

But this is one of several that was recommended by Lisa, so here’s what I see.

The poster for The Exorcist.

Looking stoned.

Things I would expect in Alejandro Jodorowsky’s The Holy Mountain.

Tarman.

Getting hit with a paper airplane…

sends you to The Lawnmower Man dimension.

Doing this fight slow enough causes it to look like they are going to make-out.

Knocking over water will spawn three CGI watermen.

Changing angles teleports cups.

The evil T-1000.

Waxman.

Alternate Waxman.

And the three Jodorowsky things are back.

According to the lyrics, “Hum it, you will remember some of it/But if you solve it, you will remember all of it.” I can do the first, but not the second. I’m just going to assume that like the video for their song Hallways, this also has to do with internal tensions within this band and the prior band, The Unicorns. It’s just a feeling I get about both of them. I could be wrong.

Other videos by Islands seem to be just as weird even if they don’t have horror elements to them like this one appears to have.

Enjoy!
