Beck and Charlotte Gainsbourg's Surreal Video

Charlotte Gainsbourg with Beck
William Goodman

Beck's weird side is rubbing off on French pop royalty Charlotte Gainsbourg.

First the SoCal rebel helped divert the Parisian from the string-laden singer/songwriter style of her last album, 5:55 -- which Beck's father helped orchestrate -- towards the more experimental sound of her January release, IRM.

Now he's going visual with the music video for the jangly and folky (and clearly Beck-influenced) "Heaven Can Wait," working with the pop princess to cram slow motion footage of the elderly in a knife fight, games of fruit baseball, giant acorns, freaky guerilla-type creatures, astronauts with pancakes for a head, hipsters with shotguns, and a baby in a hotdog outfit into 2 minutes and 42 seconds of, "Whattttttttttttttt?"

Below, watch the "Heaven Can Wait" video -- directed by Keith Schofield -- then tell us what you think in the comment section.
