This video is wrong and irresponsible. Regardless of his mother's permission, the blatant disregard of the child's well-being is criminal. A toddler of his age has a limited short-term memory/ memory recall and his viewing of the masks prior to the filiming, is a far cry from when he saw them again, where the creatures came to life and at him.
The attempt to shock the viewer with the cliched, "societal corruption of the family unit" angle, in fact, backfires, and exposes the pop band as naive and uninformed.
the kid was fine. there is a behind the scenes video on youtube and the real baby's mother was just a few feet away from him during every scene to calm him down and make him laugh about the fake creatures around him. The baby did know that they were not real because he saw the actors before the costumes and he saw the people moving some of the props. Also, during filming, his mom would cheer him on and when he got scared she would pick him up and tell them to stop filming. The baby is nowhere near scarred. check out the video
Ok, I admit it, the clip is horrible but the song rocks! <333
Cheers for nocking us off focus.
Glad mgmt is blowing through town.....August 12, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. It doesn't get much better than this.
where can u get one of those rad mgmt headbands the kid had on? hehehe.
i agree with the guy under me lol...this video is pretty creepy though...poor lil kids...i still have nightmares dont wry lil buddy lol
Feel bad for the child! But I think that was a good video! You see children all the time in scary videos, and to you who think this is wrong don't let you children go out on Halloween! This is now worse than that day for all children! They wanted to make the video go with the song and did a great job!
I refuse to watch this video i will only commented on it cuz it's 2 am and everytime I think about it it scares the **** out of me! I love the idea behind the video, but I never knew the song would even relate to the themes of the video! Plus they should've stuck with a fake baby, that stuffs truamatizing, plus I could've sworn I saw that chick throw her baby on the ground!
Visualize getting that everyday...
Love MGMT ... Love the song ... I'll just pretend I never saw parts of the video ...
