Twin Slimy, Sexy Flames

The Klaxons and director Saam Farahmand would like you to reconsider the benefits and implications of polyamory, and they’re using the music video format to do so. Or maybe they’re just trying to make you squirm. Whatever the case, peep this video for “Twin Flames” – it’s like soft-core porn for the Cronenberg generation. The only thing missing? Tentacles.

    Give a new meaning to ‘becoming one’.

    I.. i’m gonna look at some kittens now.

    still, less distressing than anything linked under Warren Ellis’ “Conan, What is Best in Life?” tag >.>;

    Well, i think it’s less creepy than Cyriak’s cow video.
    Not sure what that says about me, but there you have it.

    Good tune, too.

    MWOOHOOHOO! Y’know, I considered also saying it was NSFW, but decided that saying “porn”, and “tentacles” just about covered it.

    Nice, smooth aesthetic…sexy but not stimulating…like the palette, especially. Cool!

    I must not be awake enough to comprehend this or my brain doesn’t work the same way as most peoples…

    I don’t find it particularly disturbing, and actually see a considerable amount of beauty in the joined bodies. And I’m totally missing the polyamory connection, even after reading the lyrics. On the other hand, it’s surreal as hell, and reminds me of Artaud and the Theatre of Cruelty works.

    Nothing’s less sexy than hipsters getting it on…unless they’re mutants.

    the only thing worse would be if they all had Aphex Twin’s face.
