Today’s music video of the day is the theme song for a James Bond film. The video features a robot version of Shirley Manson, being built so that it can replace the real Shirley and blow up a theater in Chicago. This is a video that, if it were released today, I imagine would be quite controversial and people on twitter would be arguing about whether or not the video was glamorizing terrorism and AI. However, when viewed in the proper context, this video is actually a clever tribute to the Bond films. The fact that the video takes place in 1964 only adds to the homage as Sean Connery’s Bond epitomized the coolness of the early 60s.
