she liked Imaginary Men best of all

Union of the Spaceman

1 Comment

I feel like the treatment The Killers got for their Spaceman video went like this:

It’s like Union of the Snake


Except – you’re ABOVE ground! Instead of underground – see?!?


Desert setting – check

Weird WTF-ness – check

Band members doing…stuff – check

Freaky masks – check

Dreamy pretty boys I love – check and check!

One thought on “Union of the Spaceman

  1. Very good point – I love these compare and contrast ideas! Spaceman is definitely their most obscure video – it’s like a grotesque Cirque du Soleil perfomance with a merry-go-round from hell! I agree with the Duran Duran comparison – never seen that vid before, but as you say it’s got all the same elements & general ‘feel’ to it, could have been directed by the same person.
