APHEX TWIN – Come to Daddy

I will eat your soul.
I want your soul,
I will eat your soul.
Come to daddy.

APHEX TWIN - Come to Daddy - MPEG-4 clip
I recently posted a commercial that turned out to be a rip off of Chris Cunningham’s Flex. To mend this, I guess I could join kevathens in his celebration for the 10th birthday of one of my favourite music videos ever.

I remember that one of the first things I tried on the Internet was finding out where does that image I used in the preview. With no success.

The video “is, as it was in 1997, the story of technology and how we are becoming it. In the video, the faces of Aphex Twin chuckle at us with the same soullessness that occupies the man in the television.

“When he is borne of that television, we discover him to be a product of his environment: a vaporless void, a mere reflection. He has no soul, and he wants ours. And he is asking us to gather ’round and worship him.”

Ho postato, di recente, uno spot che si è rivelato una copia di Flex di Chris Cunningham. Per rimediare, mi unisco a kevathens nella celebrazione del decimo compleanno di uno dei miei video musicali preferiti di sempre.

Ricordo che una delle prime cose che cercai su Internet fu di trovare la fonte dell’immagine che ho usato nell’anteprima. Senza riuscirvi.

Il video “è, come era nel ‘97, la storia della tecnologia e di come ci stiamo trasformando in essa. Nel video, le facce di Aphex Twin ammiccano prive di anima allo stesso modo dell’uomo nella televisione.

“Una volta nato dalla tivù, scopriamo che è il prodotto del suo stesso ambiente: un vuoto assoluto, un puro riflesso. Non ha alcuna anima, e vuole le nostre. E ci sta incitando a riunirci attorno a lui per idolatrarlo.”

    A killer release!
    My favorite tracks:
    the little lord faulteroy mix & "Funny Litle Man".
    I know its so hard to make funny electronic music but these two tracks are realy the best example how to do. Ironic, stange and sometimes a bit nasty.
    THanks afx.
