Lyapis Trubetskoy - Capital (dir. Alexey Terekhov)
"Surrealistic pop art, or cynical sight at the world politics, made within the limits of formats of pop musical channels.
"An apocalypse, now."
Well that's jus' magic that is! Stupendous
Its summit else as Sid Vicious would say
.......or Eddie Cochran Yeah I know
really well done
I eat gold bricks for lunch,
and for dessert diamonds with cream of crude.
My name is Beelzebub, the master of the stratosphere,
I am unbelievably cool and commonly respected.
In my left hand a Snickers, in my right hand a Mars.
My PR manager is Karl Marx.
Capital! Capital! Capital! Capital!
My face is Madonna, all filled with rotten pears.
All kneel! The orchestra play a flourish!
Capital! Capital! Capital! Capital!
I eat cities and drink the seas.
My beard obscures the sky:
thunder and lightning, fog and rain.
Ministers and chiefs, they lick my boots.
and, from basilisk's comment over on mo'grapher:
What’s it all about? A bit of research into Belarusian politics gives a few possible answers. Alexander Lukashenko is the bald guy with the moustache, with the label “batska” (father) who is president of Belarus. He was elected (in an election that was alleged to be rigged by European observers) to a third term in 2006. Belarus has a centralised Soviet-style economy with little political and economic freedom. Lukashenko favours close ties with Russia, and has also had close ties with political mavericks such as Castro, Chavez, Ahmadinejad (and presumably Saddam Hussain and Kim Jong Il)
I imagine that any satirical depiction of the president is pretty radical in Belarus, maybe even dangerous. The anti-capitalist message is somewhat confusing though, given that Belarus is probably the least capitalist country in Europe. Maybe it helps get the song past the censor?
It seems to be sum sort ov nod to anti-globalism and was released on the Ist May for the international solidarity day of the workers
Interesting WAG related video! its cool Belarus 'Playboy' playgirls of the month!

But now pop-kultura became so small that we decided to take a more global topics and issues”. Composition would name a new album “lpisov”, who’s previous working title “jir and golden salo”.
“This song is not the money at all, said ‘lpisov’ leader. "It is the cult of accumulation and consumption, which is rampant in today's society. My dream is to reach the point at which a phone with diamonds or go to superdorogoy car will be a great shame.

Wow! Great video! That was a blast! And it wasn't until 2/3 of the way through that I knew the singer was in Insane Clown Posse.
Anyone know where that is being aired?

Woah! It's like a massive Marc Ryden trip! Reminds me of like 10 things at once. holy!
This is totally not as complex or anything but pretty cool too. For cutout animation that kinda has depth.
