This video for the UK electropop duo Robots in Disguise was directed by UK artist Dave the Chimp and it's an amazing little epic, a kind of live-action Powerpuff Girls episode brought to life with cardboard and string and some very NSFW language. The hypnotist bad guy with a whole lot of chin is Noel Fielding, from the brilliant English comedy series, The Mighty Boosh. Robots in Disguise have appeared on Boosh a few times as various slatternly characters, and Fielding and the Robots' Dee Plume have apparently become a popular tabloid couple in the UK. Don't you wish America was cool enough to have weirdoes like these on the covers of the magazines at the checkout stand? (Click the image above to buy the Robots in Disguise CD Get Rid on Amazon.)
