Friday Night Videos: North Europe

Carpark North: Human (2005)

What makes this video so wonderful is the children, all of whom are in that awkward stage between true childhood and adolescence. Reportedly the directory, Martin De Thurah, cast child dancers but then instructed them to “dance ugly.” The result is surprisingly touching and, at a few brief points, poignant.

Röyksopp: Remind Me (2002)

I can’t stop watching this video. I walk away from the computer to break the cycle, and five minutes later I’m back watching again.
