Attention Internet! The music video of the decade has finally arrived and is brought to us by none other than one of my favorite bands of all time, Duran Duran. Their video for their current single Girl Panic! from their new album “All You Need is Now” impacted cyberspace early last week and really shows the band returning to their roots.
Duran Duran may have been around since the 80s, but with this video, directed by the incredible Jonas Åkerlund, they prove that they’ve definitely still got it. Reminiscent of past videos such as Notorious, Girls on Film, and Rio, the video for Girl Panic! (which is by far the best song on their incredible new album) contains an unreal amount of models in the highest fashion and more champagne than the average person knows what to do with. Starring Naomi Campell, Eva Herzigova, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen and Yasmin Le Bon as the members of Duran Duran, this video takes you through a day in the life of an incredible rock band. Easily one of the greatest, if not the greatest, music videos I have ever seen.
