Clip du Jour: Spike Jonze's explosive music video

Posted on

As we patiently (or not so patiently) anticipate the Where the Wild Things Are trailer that will play in theaters Friday before Monsters vs. Aliens, here’s a little piece of new Spike Jonze material to hold us over until then. The clip below is Jonze’s latest music video for UNKLE’s song “Heaven.” The song was previously used in Fully Flared, the 2007 skateboarding film directed by Jonze, Ty Evans, and Cory Weincheque. But for the song’s music video, Jonze reedited some of the movie’s footage and added some, well, propulsion. The result is pure slo-mo awesomeness that makes skateboarding seem simultaneously graceful and suicidal. What do you think, PopWatchers? Is the vid a nifty trick…or been there, done that?
