On LCD Soundsystem's latest album This Is Happening, frontman James Murphy and Co. deliver a set of amped-up disco-punk jams, including the slow-building epic "Home." Now, there is a unofficial video from director Rick Darge. It's not sanctioned by the band or their label, but it's still pretty great.
According to Pitchfork the video features, a robot that comes to life and wanders dejectedly around city streets. It's basically a retelling of Short Circuit 2, except that instead of triumphantly breaking up a ring of con men, the robot ends up triumphantly rocking parties. And then becoming a rock star. And then falling apart when a coke-fueled hotel room orgy goes bad. And then returns to his gigantic-eyebrowed inventor. So not actually that much like Short Circuit 2, then.
