The best part about writing this blog is spending my precious time seeking out the funnest costumes ever created. One of my favorite bands, Architecture in Helsinki, wins today’s prize.
Well, most people won’t call this a costume, but rather a puppet. It’s basically a small body attached to the shirt of the wearer. Their head acts as the puppet’s head and the puppet arms are connected to their wrists. When the person moves their wrists, it makes the puppet dance.
I’m a long time AiH fan and have notoriously not understood their clever lyrics to mean anything deep. Either way, this new video for “Heart it Races” has a theme and is unbelieveably clever and addictive. Best part? Well, watch until the end to see what happens when the lights go out.
