Angela Natividad's Live & Uncensored!

'...An Inspiring Series of Domestic Sex Machines.'

That's the uncomfortably apt description for Lernert & Sander's music video creation for "Elektrotechnique," a single released by Dutch band De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig.

There were a few moments while watching this where I got serious wince reflex, which is part of what makes it neaty. I don't want to be dealing with that hacksaw paddle thing though.

Lernert & Sander are Amsterdam-based artists whose aim is "to make simple and communicative works, which take little note of the existing borders between contemporary art and commercial projects.Their highly aesthetic, humorous and dedicated works often challenge the viewer, in a simple but very effective way."

It is not a bad philosophy, particularly if you're loyal to it.

(Remember that darling video of the chocolate bunny being decimated in various delightful ways? Also domestic-themed, also surreal? That was them! God, I love that video.)
