Music Video Pimps: MGMT’s “Electric Feel”

When you mix the nonchalant coolness of Flight of The Concords with the sometimes disco grooves of Beck, you get something extra rad: MGMT. Now throw in some Amazon rain forest, hot hipster chicks, and psychedelic body paint and you get the trippy new video from MGMT for their song, “Electric Feel”.

Tell me ONE thing that is wrong with any of the following things:

  • Hotties in American Apparel dresses
  • ET-esque motorcycles flying through the sky
  • Dancing bears playing music Chuck-E-Cheese style
  • Insinuations of drug orgies
  • A band from Brooklyn, New York actually having some substance

I know, you’re baffled. You’re baffled because there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of these components that help to make up one of the sickest videos I have ever seen-and one of the sexiest songs I have ever heard.

Check out the MGMT’s new “Electric Feel” video after the jump!

Not convinced it’s sexy?

Scope these lyrics, son:

“Saw her in the amazon, with voltage running through her skin, standing there with nothing on, she’s gonna teach me how to swim. Oh girl, shock me like an electric eel, Baby girl, turn me on with your electric feel.”

Yeah. And something tells me that these guys got some serious electric feels from these babes in t-shirt dresses, in between shoots on set for this video. Two thumbs up for 70’s porn rock from me.
