Music Video of the Day: Breakin’ A Sweet by Skrillex (feat. The Doors) (2013, dir by Radical Friend)


For today’s music video of the day, we have the wonderfully strange video for Skrillex’s Breakin’ A Sweat.  The song incorporates a sample from an interview that Jim Morrison gave in the 60s, while the remaining vocals are provided by the surviving members of The Doors.

As for the video itself, it’s tempting (for me, at least!) to compare the opening to any of the numerous shark films that have been broadcast on SyFy over the past few years.  (Planet of the Sharks comes immediately to mind.)  However, this video actually released a year before Sharknado breathed new life into the killer shark genre.  So, really, this video was a bit ahead of its time as far as killer sharks were concerned.

Of course, no sooner have the aliens escaped the sharks and had delightful alien sex than they somehow find themselves in our world, having to deal with helicopters and cars.  Why do the two aliens get zapped into our world at the end of the video?  Who knows?  Who cares?  Perhaps we should worry less about the exact reason and instead just observe the fact that it happened.

Hopefully, the baby will be okay.

Enjoy!
