3:01 Pick Me Up: MGMT
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: sure, we've featured MGMT's "Kids" before, but what better time to bring it back than in our countdown to Halloween? The video stars a kid who is virtually guaranteed to have a lifetime of nightmares, plus Joanna Newsom as his oblivious (and, let's be honest, outrageously hot) yuppie mom.
