Post-apocalyptic landscape, Kanye West floating in zero gravity, the kiss of a woman turning a robot into flesh-and-blood… it can only mean one thing: Katy Perry is officially in orbit for her “E.T.” music video.
This spacey, robotic jam might not have been an album highlight, but thanks to Kanye West’s verses concerning his commitment to alien sex, the song is currently a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as fodder for this awesomely bizzare sci-fi video, which impressively resists any obvious Spielberg references. Watch it here:
Floating through space and looking like a cross between Queens Amidala and Of Sheba, Katy-alien descends to earth, where she suddenly sprouts spots that bring to mind Dax from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. (No, I’m not a geek).
What do you think of this video? Did surprise end reveal get you? (It did me: I always thought she waxed.) Or are you disappointed that at no point in this video did lasers shoot out of her breasts?
