Feist Music Video Explodes My Brain

Has anybody noticed that most music videos suck out loud now? If you flip to MTV, you've only got a 1 in 5,000 chance of actually seeing a video instead of some kind of bizarre faux-reality show. If you win the cable lottery and catch a video, it's probably just strobe lights or a 4 minute close-up of spinners (maybe with a few strobe lights for good measure.) Where are the great music videos of our time? Where are our Thrillers? Our Virtual Insanities?

Well I just caught the full version of Feist's video for "1 2 3 4" off her new album The Reminder and it's one-shot glory gave me new hope in music videos. Check it:
