Animal Collective Applesauce Gaspar Noe

Gaspar Noé fans were a bit unfairly dismissive when earlier this month the director's video for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' "We No Who U R" dropped. Many wanted more of the director's trademark kinetic camerawork and less wandering around the woods following a shadow, and so a few weeks later, Noé has pulled the strobe lights back out of the supply closet. 

Animal Collective continue to promote their latest album, Centipede HZ, and now comes the second official video, the Noé-directed "Applesauce." If you have epilepsy you may want to look away or make sure you've taken your meds. The video, "intended to be viewed in complete darkness," goes hard with strobing colors as a model provocatively eats some fruit, in a spot that borrows elements from visual artist Paul Sharits' 1968 short film “N:O:T:H:I:N:G,” which you can see excerpts from below. And yeah, you'll quickly get the idea.

So if you need a bit of a pick-me-up this afternoon, just click play below. [Pitchfork]
