Watch: Video For Radiohead's 'Lotus Flower' Turns Thom Yorke's Spastic Dancing Into Art

Give it up to director Garth Jennings. The helmer, landing the pretty plum gig of directing the first video from Radiohead's brand new album "The King Of Limbs" (arriving for download from the boys a day earlier than expected) has hit the web and it has a pretty simple, genius concept. Put a vaudeville hat on Thom Yorke and just film his spastic dancing to the song "Lotus Flower." The result is a bizarrely compelling video with Yorke's flailing, curiously spellbinding limbs as the main attraction.

Give it up to director Garth Jennings. The helmer, landing the pretty plum gig of directing the first video from Radiohead's brand new album "The King Of Limbs" (arriving for download from the boys a day earlier than expected) has hit the web and it has a pretty simple, genius concept. Put a vaudeville hat on Thom Yorke and just film his spastic dancing to the song "Lotus Flower." The result is a bizarrely compelling video with Yorke's flailing, curiously spellbinding limbs as the main attraction.

Garth Jennings is better known to most folks as one half (along with Nick Goldsmith) of the music video and commercial directing duo, Hammer & Tongs. The team has made celebrated ads and music videos for years, including works for Blur, R.E.M., Fatboy Slim and yes, Radiohead ("Nude," "Jigsaw Falling Into Place"). The team has also wet their feet with feature films with Jennings directing and Goldsmith producing. Their first venture was the ill-advised adaptation of "Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy" in 2005 and it was followed a couple of years later with low key charmer, "Son Of Rambow."

Have a good Friday and check out the video below. [Radiohead]
