La Roux - In For The Kill
"The record is old, the video is new. You may or may not know that La Roux already released a video for their 2nd single back in 2009. Actually Ms. Jackson looks a lot better in the older video in my opinion. She's almost as androgynous as David Bowie in this one. She's like, half Bowie half vampire. Of course for all I know David Bowie IS a vampire.
Anyway, La Roux has a bigger budget now so heck yeah I'd be remaking videos too. It's shot very differently from their other videos. This time they went for a more high quality, suggestive and dark look that's fitting of their elevated pop status. Replete with snakes, hot women in high heels, cheesy sponsor plugs (L'oreal, Belvedere), and La Roux doing her own version of the Diddy Bop, it's really no wonder why I chose this as the video of the week. Enjoy."
