Music videos – sometimes the fans do it better


MGMT, formally known as Management, don’t seam to have an official video for ‘Kids,’ but the above directed by Jon Salmon is a great example of an unofficial video on YouTube . A good few people look to think it’s the official video, but it’s not. On the video’s page Salmon says:

This is an unofficial video for MGMT. The guy and the girl are not MGMT.

However, though I can’t say much, you can expect to see the guy and the girl in this video in the OFFICIAL vid for MGMT’s “Electric Feel”, coming out in a few weeks.

Thank you all so much for passing this on to your friends. I was there when the band themselves saw the video this past weekend (and really liked it) and it’s only because of your encouragement that it was all possible.

Hope you enjoyed, expect more soon

The two do appear in the official ‘Electric Feel’ video, or maybe their look-alikes do, but Salmon’s efforts are far superior. The main two guys in the ‘Electric Feel’ video — presumable MGMT? — might be more official. The two in the unofficial ‘Kids’ video beats them hands down, I think it’s the open display of passion. The same can be said for the style of the video. Sometimes the fans just do it better.
