Pretty Much the Best Thing Ever

This site isn't really for talking music videos, but I simply cannot delay gushing about the David Bowie video for "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" any longer.  I have watched this thing probably about a dozen times over the last 48 hours, and have come to the conclusion that obviously what is happening here is that someone has been reading a transcript of the pop culture wishlist I keep in my head. It is here my friends, the on-screen meeting of David Bowie and Tilda Swinton. AKA: the best possible pairing ever and just about everything I could possibly wish to come of Bowie's musical return. This is it, people, Floria Sigismondi has taken two of my pop patron saints and finally merged them in one gloriously bizarre and hyper stylish androgyny blitz also featuring crazy beautiful androgyne models Andrej Pejic and Saskia de Brauw.

I had a teen fangirl brain meltdown when I saw this. Could not fully process the video as a thing that exists. I'm still not sure it's real. The only thing that grounds it in reality is the font choice. That's not the font I would choose in my head, so it has to be a thing...right?
