This music video by the group Massive Attack is so weird on so many levels.
Let’s start with the fact that the main protagonists are Rosamund Pike of “Gone Girl” fame, and a floating orb with a spike.
And the title is “Vodoo in My Blood.”
And the quote by Pike where she says:
“Am I involved?… Someone said the girl in the video looks like me. I have been to the Joe Strummer subway. I did have a strange encounter there once.”
And the realization that there is a place called the Joe Strummer Subway. It’s in London, and it’s named for the lead singer of “The Clash,” who died 14 years ago. (I still can’t believe Joe Strummer is dead.)
And the unsettling violence of the girl/orb encounter. I freaked out at the spike.
And finally, what the hell just happened here?
