Stumbled across this brilliant video I used to love back in 2003 - the track is medium-to-good, but the visuals are amazing - and it got me thinking that its a shame that the 'concept' music promo seems to have died a death, although there's no reason why it should have - people point to the death of MTV due to the rise of YouTube as the main factor, but surely the rise of YouTube should lead to new and creative videos being made on computers by bedroom wunderkinds everywhere.
But it turns out that record labels have found through their focus group studies that apparently people dont really want to watch amazingly creative concept videos. They just want to watch semi naked women writhing around in slow motion with a couple of flashing lights in the background. And thats it. Watch MTV these days and thats all you'll see. sad.
