Buzz-Worthy Video: "Skeletons" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Just when I think my girl crush on Karen O can't get any more feverish, here comes the video for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Skeletons," yet another cinematic spectacle to ogle over. Following a gut-filled massacre at the hands of a Michael Jackson werewolf for "Heads Will Roll," the black and white footage for "Skeletons" similarly sticks to the macabre, cutting between graveyard shots and eerie inkblot-esque imagery (fun fact: Karen O's boyfriend Barney Clay is the director). Karen appears dressed almost like the ghost of Clara Bow.

I can't describe exactly why the spooky footage has me so transfixed, but it fits nicely with the slow pace and haunting feel of the song. Take a look at it for yourself when you read more.
