HIM’S NEW “HEARTKILLER” VIDEO: VILLE VALO, AMATEUR TAXIDERMIST
So I’m sitting here watching HIM’s new video for “Heartkiller” and I’m thinking “Okay. This isn’t exactly memorable or anything, but red and blue lights, a woman posing for no real reason, the word ‘love,’ lots of close-ups of Ville Valo. I get it. It serves its purpose.”
And the fucking Bambi shows up on-screen.
And it’s not even a live deer – it looks stuffed to me, although I suppose it could just be completely fake.
AND THEN THERE’S THUMPER, TOO.
And then a bunch OTHER animals.
Seriously, what the fuck is going on in this video? What was the thought process behind this? Someone smarter than me please explain, ’cause all I can keep thinking is “HUH?”
HIM’s new album, Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice, comes out February 9 on Sire.
