"Larry in Bathtub Making Waves With Mermaid!"

Last night, I finally saw the video for "Electrical Storm". I stayed up 'til around 3am flipping through approximately *3* music video channels...MTV, MTV2, and VH1. I had nooooo such luck with MTV and MTV2 because they kept looping the same videos over and over again between the hours of 12:30am and 5:30am. NO kidding! DO NOT WATCH MTV! During that time-frame I probably saw that horrid, awful Eminem video 3 or 4 times. They kept it on heavy rotation!!! Unbelievable. No sign of "Electrical Storm" on either MTV or MTV2...so I had to keep a lookout on VH1. With much patience and luck, I finally caught it around 3:10am. I was sleepy as heck!!! For those who haven't seen it on television, you might as well just wait for it when it's released on that special DVD single format in October. No joke! You will have great trouble catching it on MTV or MTV2 because it's NOT on their mindless 'rotation' yet!!

I liked the video though. The 'grumpy-drummer-boy' really had a splash in the tub with the mermaid. The smooching/caressing sessions in the bathtub reminded me of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" video. Still, I'm a big fan of Anton Corbijn and I loved the black and white treatment of this video for a change! Excellent choice for a video director!! Very artistic.
