A new Spike Jonze music video? is out, well technically it is a perfume commercial, but it closely resembles a music video the famed director released a few years back. Once again, Jonze has delved into dancing in a luxurious building. This time, however, he has enlisted Margaret Qualley to play the dancer instead of Christopher Walken.
The video, which is actually a commercial for the new Kenzo World fragrance, doubles as a music video for his brother, Sam Spiegel, and Ape Drums' track "Mutant Brain" [ft. Assassin]. It features choreography from Sia choreographer Ryan Heffington. As we were saying, it very closely resembles the video for Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice". Check out both videos below to see the similarities.
Jonze last directed a music video for Kanye West's "Only One" [ft. Paul McCartney]. Before that he hadn't directed a music video since 2011, when he did the Beastie Boys' "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" [ft. Santigold], and Jay-Z & Kanye West's "Otis". In 2013, Jonze released Her, the fourth film he's directed. He won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the movie. The same year, he also played a part in Martin Scorsese's Wolf of Wall Street.
