gnarls barkley + chris milk: who’s gonna save my soul.

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Building on the microscopic instrumental insect goodness that was their collab for “Gone Daddy Gone”, Gnarls Barkley has teamed up again with director Chris Milk to create the new video for ‘Who’s Gonna Save My Soul”.

This new vid is closely approaching genius. Fearless, not afraid to be gross, and deeply, depressingly, almost disgustingly insightful about the true nature of relationships, breakups, and the psychological shrapnel they leave behind. If only people could really be this honest with each other.

Plus, in addition to the kick-ass CG, the tricks provide not just flash, but a visual continuation and re-interpretation of the narrative. Attention-grabbing for sure, but as an eye-popping layer to the already laid out story, not just for the sake of special affects alone.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed a cool cameo at about 2:56. If not, it’s definitely worthy of multiple viewings…
