[Video] Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll

Nice, much better than the Zero video which was a bit aimless with Karen O, er, aimlessly wandering about in that leather jacket.

Like Zero, this track has a few Michael Jackson tributes. Zero had the leather jacket and glove combo; this has got the dance moves, the suit, the Billie Jean style dance floor, the hat throw…plus half a dozen over nods that the more fantatical fans of Jackson’s work will be able to point out I imagine.

The red confetti as blood is a nice touch and suits the light-hearted nature of the video and the shiny new-wave disco style of the track. The last shot of Karen O bloodied and disembodied, singing the last few lines of the track is a great image, too.

Richard Ayoade, Moss in the IT Crowd, and Dean Learner of the vastly underrated Darth Marenghi’s Darkplace, directs.
