    This Music Video Features Monsters of All Kinds, Makes You Doubt Your Sanity

    It's true that there's no accounting for taste.

It's kind of like if David Bowie's Goblin King kidnapped Big Bird and Snuffleupagus, fused them together with Jeff Goldblum's Telepods from The Fly, then brought them to the land in Where the Wild Things Are. Oh, and then the monstrosities danced with a girl who was possessed by the ghost of Björk. Yeah, that's about right.
