Retro Video Raid: The Cure “Close to Me”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

One of my favorite videos ever, from one of my favorite bands ever! Video Director Tim Pope shoved all the boys inside a wardrobe and pushed them off a cliff while they “play” their 1985 single on makeshift instruments, and Robert waggles finger puppets of the band. <3

I’m particularly fond of Lol’s tiny keyboard and Porl dramatically plucking a comb. I used to cheer whenever I caught this playing on MTV, because it’s so damn adorable. This is one of those lucky cinematic creations that fits the song perfectly. Love it!
