Fantastic Bombastic

This will surprise nobody who’s ever heard me go on about them, but I can’t stop watching the new Muse video. It’s so perfectly edited, it adds enormously to an already excellent song.

I was trying to think what the expression on Kelly Holmes’s face in the last few seconds reminded me of. But of course: it was another video that made me very happy indeed.

Another subliminal parallel: Bellamy singing “race, it’s a race” at 2:23 brought to mind 0:24 of this. Snake, it’s a snake...
