Music Video: “Kids” by MGMT [dir. Ray Tintori]

By  | 

Like some kind of nightmare borne from a Terry Gilliam flick and an episode of Pee-wee’s Playhouse viewed on acid, comes the official video from MGMT for “Kids.” Now, if you haven’t seen or heard anything about the video, maybe you should just watch it. But, here are some delightful pull-quotes from people who have: “…a six-minute video starring Joanna Newsom as a mom who totes around a toddler who sees monsters worthy of GWAR’s percussion section everywhere he looks” (Rolling Stone blog), “MGMT promise no children were harmed in the making of this video. I think the kid’s therapist will have to confirm that in twenty years” (Stereogum), and last (but not least) the reaction from Fox News. Enough? Take a look for yourselves.

MGMT have a few summer dates, at which you may catch the madness live:

9 June | THE VILLAGE – (Little Rock, AR)
11 June | MINGLEWOOD HALL – (Memphis, TN)
13 June | BONNAROO FESTIVAL – (Manchester, TN)
1 July | PROSPECT PARK – (Brooklyn, NY)
2 August | ALL POINTS WEST FESTIVAL – (Liberty State Park, NJ)

Born in PB, raised in PQ, thrived on The Beatles.

    I thought the song and surprisingly the video was genius…and that’s coming from a woman who is the mother of a toddler herself. I love the meaning behind it all. Granted it is a TAD bit off the wall but I highly doubt this musical group would risk their entire careers making a music video which subjected a toddler to child cruelty. I’m positive some of it wasn’t edited but clearly most of that could have been edited. I mean we have to give them a bit of credit. People keep bashing and bashing….do your research first before jumping to conclusions.
