I was going through the rest of director Jacob Gentry‘s portfolio and saw that he had just released this new video for Broken Bells‘ single “The Ghost Inside”. The lead is played by Christina Hendricks who you’ll recognise as Joan from Mad Men. (Which is perfect as the launch of Mad Men’s final season this week is probably the most anticipated event on my television viewing calendar this year.) She plays a space traveller on a mission to realise her glamourous, Hollywood fantasy. My favourite detail is that she has to sacrifice parts of her body to make the journey, when in fact Hendricks’ voluptuous body is what catapulted her to stardom in real life.
There are just so many interviews online with the band and the director on this album, it’s promising to be a 2014 must-have. Once again, look out for the duo’s cameo.
