Crisp N' Fresh: Marina Spills The 'Shampain', The Tears & The 'Thriller' References

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Going all Gain Fresh happy over the fact that Marina & The Diamonds have finally released "Shampain" as the next single from the wonderful, and Audio Diva approved, The Family Jewels. I passionately adore this track. Yet, I'm a bit underwhelmed at the music video for it partially because it's just feels thrown together. Marina wandering around in her own gothic nightmare in a playground filled with zombies seems like a good set-up, but it kind of falls flat. Even the nods (okay, the complete head shake) to Michael Jackson's iconic Thriller video complete with familiar choreography feels outplayed, since we're pretty much on MJ tribute burn-out by now. Still don't let that deter you away from the song...which deserved much more for a music video than this.
