Julian Lynch – Gloves Music Video

In Julian Lynch’s music video for “Gloves”, bizarre idea after bizarre idea is executed in fairly mundane settings. All of it might be a bit harder to swallow or a bit more trite if the video were just slightly more static — but its glittery lighting brilliance and creeping zoom shots somehow make its awkwardness beautiful rather than overdone. This beauty extends even to its slow-motion Macarena-meet-zombie-walk dance routines and longing exchanges between the music video’s main character and a mangled stuffed bunny rabbit.
