Jacko Love: Yeah Yeah Yeahs & Peter Bjorn and John!
WATCH: The King of Pop plays the muse in two new music videos.
Look no further than the new music vids from Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Peter Bjorn and John for evidence that Michael Jackson is back.
Exhibit A: For the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ new video for dancefloor-filler “Heads Will Roll,” the band does its usual, our-hipness-runneth-over thing (Ms. O rocks a Ziggy Stardust’s girlfriend get-up, Nick Zinner plays a lighty-uppy synthesizer). But things take a Jacko twist when a double-jointed werewolf with serious “Billie Jean” moves takes center stage. It’s all very Footloose finale until he turns on the crowd and a confetti-filled massacre ensues. Spoiler alert: Even when she’s torn limb from limb, Karen O can still close the deal.Watch here:
Exhibit B: Peter Bjorn and John’s video for “It Don’t Move Me” sees a father-son duo bond over a shared love of “Thriller” video choreography. But it’s not all feel-good and Flashdance-type training sequences: Things get sinister (in a David Lynch kind of way) when Dad starts hitting golf balls at his son and later their car bursts into flames.Don’t: Ask us to explain exactly what happened.
