all boy/all girl are sharing their “Glitters” music video, a wild, deranged, and violent ode to game shows that brings the theatrical nature of their music to new heights. AV Club premiered the video today, comparing the visual aesthetic to Wes Anderson before noting, “while it’s visually stunning it grows increasingly more unsettling with the start of each new round”. In addition to the video, The AV Club is also sharing the accompanying “Trophy Smasher” video game, an interactive game that offers gamers the chance to blow off a little steam… with a hammer and a room full of trophies. The game has several levels that can be unlocked by downloading the EP and actual prizes that include exclusive music and merch from the band.
The “Glitters” video was inspired by the song’s theme of a delusional state of bliss achieved despite surrounding unpleasantries. The director, Lukasz Pytlik, was able to convey this emotional state with a demented game show concept, whereby the contestants are fixated with fame. The spotlight blinds them to the absurdity of the situation, so much so that they’re completely unaffected by the gruesome final contest, which concludes in predictable game show fashion with a celebrating winning contestant.
