Better Down Where It’s Wetter!

Two fish from the video for The Chemical Brothers - The Salmon Dance

Dude, I don’t care how stupid it is. I dig the new Chemical Brothers video!

“The Salmon Dance”! With scenes straight out of The Little Mermaid, the Brothers educate us on the habits of this tasty animal! Fatlip as a rapping fish is even better than Fatlip as a clown! There’s also a beatboxing blowfish! What’s not to like?

Oh, I guess everything that the above Stereogum readers complain about.

Sure, “The Salmon Dance” isn’t much more beyond the same generic electronic beats (along with some unnecessary vocal processing) that the Brothers have been providing for years. But now it’s playful! I can get behind that.

Plus Finding Nemo makes me weep like a baby.
