Daft Punk “Prime Time of Your Life”

These days nothing should faze us, but honestly, this video still freaks me out. And for their album Human After All, Daft Punk were probably going through a dark phase. Directed by special effects designer Tony Gardner, it features what I suppose could be a commentary on body dysmorphia (?) as a young girl lives in a world where she sees only skeletons around her yet sees herself as fleshy and overweight. It culminates in a really tragic and disturbing end scene where…well, watch it in all it’s retro VHS glory.
