Video: Grimes – “Oblivion”

“Oblivion” is an adorable electro-pop fantasy from Grimes, also known as 24 year-old Montreal-local, Claire Boucher.

Watch her as she waves around a hotdog (or other delightful stadium edible) and dances amongst McGill University football players and motocross fans with pink hair and large headphones clinging to her face.

I love this video because all the people in it are so genuine, I mean, where else are you going to see a guy walking in front of the camera and waving apologetically? And where else would that footage even be left in? Only in Canada.

[This is what ANTM Allison Harvard’s music career would look/sound like]

    I love this video. I saw it once and then couldn’t get it out of my head. So Googled, motocross, football, pink hair and here I am.

    Football, weightlifters, and motorcross? She has a very mousy voice. I really did not understand the words because her voice was so light. This was a very cheap video. I’m sorry but I couldn’t get into it.
