Chromeo's brand of cheesed-out electro-funk already comes stuffed with copious nods to the 1980s, but the Canadian duo find room for one more with their video for "Come Alive," the latest single from their upcoming White Women album. The Alex Southam-directed visual plays like an homage to the 1987 film Mannequin, a stone-cold classic in the "Oh no, I'm in love with an inanimate object" genre of rom-coms. Chromeo's Dave 1 is out of luck with the ladies, so he takes the next logical step: He starts trolling a local department store with Toro y Moi (who guests on the track) to pick up some mannequins who have magically come to life.

Watch the clip — which was the first-ever video to debut exclusively to Shazam users — above. Chromeo's upcoming tour dates, including gigs at Coachella and Primavera Sound, are below.
