This video is a classic example of someone who commits themselves utterly to their Art. It’s creepy as hell and it reminds me of a great Thomas Ligotti story.

It’s ironic that Brian Warner (a.k.a. Marilyn Manson) came along in the mid-90s and absolutely mastered the form, right as the form itself was dying. The Music Video really doesn’t matter anymore…or does it?

Has the internet and 24-hour “on demand” access made the music video a vital art form again? If that is the case, then surely the production values have gone down. In other words, they don’t make them like this one anymore. This video is like a miniature horror movie. Very effective…and it rocks. Play it loud.
