|||||Girl Panic! - Duran Duran, of course ;-)||]|
I just watched the video for the above, which is the band's new single. If you're a fan of Duran, the 80s, electronica or incredibly well produced pop music then I urge you to check it out. I have a soft spot for the band, tinged inevitably with a hefty dose of rose coloured nostalgia, but I was very pleasantly surprised by this. It's smart, funny, cool and very sexy. And, more importantly for me, it's an object lesson in how to use scantily clad models in a video without it being offensively misogynistic, gratuitous or objectifying. Rappers, hip hop artists etc, please take note.
