3:01 Pick Me Up: Daft Punk
Let’s face it: 3 p.m. is the cruellest time of the workday. The morning latte has worn off, and the post-lunch crash has you staggering around like an extra from a George A. Romero flick. That’s why, each weekday at 3:01 p.m., we present you with a video hand-picked to kick-start your heart. If the following clip doesn’t bring you temporarily back to life and help get you through the rest of the afternoon, chances are you’re dead inside.
Today's offering: our countdown to Halloween continues. Sure, it looks like someone recorded it with their VCR in 1985, and it's all about how media images can affect a young girl's self-image, but we're pretty sure we never saw anything quite this gruesomely surreal on the ABC Afterschool Special. If we did, we were probably so traumatized that we repressed the memory.
