3:01 Pick me Up: Ratatat
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. Okay, so maybe the video for Ratatat's "Drugs" isn't outright terrifying. You've got to admit, though, that there's something unsettling about watching these stock images outside of any context. The forced, and ultimately unconvincing, displays of emotion seem to suggest that something else is really going on under the surface. What sinister secrets are these people hiding?
