Video: Rufus Wainwright – “Out Of The Game”

Here’s a lovely video featuring everybody’s favorite eccentric, Helena Bonham Carter, mouthing the words to the latest Mark Ronson-produced ditty from Rufus Wainwright.

This might bring to mind several other lip-syncing celebrity videos, like Robert Downey Jr. in Elton John’s “I Want Love,” only this time there’s a little gender-reversal, like a calmer Winona Rider in “Talk About The Blues.”

It’s a little unnerving but ultimately rewarding to see Tim Burton’s wife cavorting around as a forlorn and imaginative librarian. Oh, and the Wainwright-on-Wainwright action was pretty entertaining too.
You’re only a child/with the mind of a senile man/you’re only a young thing/’bout to sleep with a sea of men/just hangin’ around/wearin’ somethin’ from God knows where/just havin’ a ball
