The music video for Interpol's "Evil" features a troubled puppet with just enough realistic human features -- eyes, teeth, hair, and furrowed brow -- to scare the bejeezus out of people. Fans have taken to calling him Norman.
"Evil" is the first video by Charlie White, an artist who builds photorealistic images that combine real people, digital effects, and disturbing puppets.
I bought Interpol's CD Antics this week, and it all sounds like "Evil" -- a bunch of lush, gloomy songs that remind me of '80s bands like the Psychedelic Furs and Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark.
If John Hughes was still making angst-ridden teen movies, these guys would be playing right at the point where Jon Cryer finally realizes that girls will never choose him when Andrew McCarthy and James Spader are available.
Interpol :) have goods songs too, like: pda and slow hands. I like those 2 much.
I don't find the puppet all that creepy, to be honest.
