My Favourite Music Videos: Girl - Beck
Of course, he couldn’t be missing in this list! This music video which was inspired by the MAD fold-ins is for me one the greatest video that I’ve ever seen. It will make you giggle with the transformation of phrases such as “simple effortless cures for diseases” and “fluoride corrects bad breath” to “side effects: death” (a great irony showing all the lies behind some products).
Beck wander in this place that seems to be in the fronteer with Mexico (and I like this a lot, because we all know that Beck was highly influence by living there) that folds in, but he just continues his life as if nothing was happening. Sometimes he contemplates at some of this fold-ins but he goes on singing this song abot his girl. Have you seen the references to his pasts songs? I’ll give you some clues: Lost Cause and two turntable and a microphone! Easy right? So, to conclude, this is a fun video for a fun song.
