New David Lynch video is a gem

David Lynch is not known for being... normal. But some people find he went off the rails a bit with his latest offerings since he fell in love with digital video. Well, his new self directed video for his song Crazy Clown Time is, for me, a real return to form.


The uncomfortably literal video is a bit harsh on the aesthetics, but in all the right ways, and it doesn't feel like Lynch took the piss with it but actually thought it through as an artistic endeavour (a friend surmised to me that at this point, if Lynch had, in fact, developed dementia, how would anyone know after such eclectic output his entire career?). This is a piece that any Lynch fan can enjoy openly without the fear of ridicule (Inland Empire is always a sticky subject).


This is not your every day glossy music promo. It is quickly one of my favourite videos, and enhances a song I was on the fence about. It's Crazy Clown Time!
