The story of The Lady Killer continues with Cee-Lo's next single, "Bodies," which takes on the kind of morbid surreal tone as Gnarles Barkley's "Necromancer." The "Bodies" video, directed by Mikael Colombu, features celebrities like Kerry Washington, a transformer-Karl-Lagerfeld-switchblade (apparently available at H&M), Bilal Oliver 'trapped inside,' and Janelle Monáe looking even less human than usual.
Vtech Music has given us videos of Bilal in an amazing jam session, reworking classic songs like "Is This Love" and "Tainted Love." But it's especially appropriate that today they have released Bilal's official music video for "Robots," a track from the monster of an album Airtight's Revenge.
From Vtech, An Election Day Special:
On this Election Day 2010, Bilal teams up with French director Mikael Colombu to bring you “Robots”. Come along and join us on this multi-media journey as we see the world of politics through Bilal’s eyes. Mikael’s ability to translate Bilal’s words into imagery, gives us a chance to properly reflect on his ideology of modern times.
To Bilal, people are becoming more like robots through the use of manipulative propaganda by corporate media . This video is his way of opening everyone’s eyes to the truth. As you watch “Robots” you’ll soon find yourself paying very close attention to what is really going on.
Pass this along, and help the robots amongst us.
And don’t forget to make a change by voting today.
