Justice's 'Love S.O.S.' video is a violent and vivifying tackle fame from the angle of the spectacle – Dancing Astronaut

 

 

 

Where there’s Justice afoot, some freakish (and unmistakably French) enjoyable is bound to comply with. The duo’s just lately launched “Love S.O.S.” video is an uncanny manifestation of Justice’s otherworldly aesthetic and inconceivable journey.

The observe comes off Justice’s just lately launched Woman Worldwide stay album, which consists of re-envisioned tracks from their huge repertoire. “Love S.O.S.” mirrors its visible counterpart’s merriment and pervasive vigor.

The video follows an immaculate, although misshapen, bodybuilder/stripper by means of his unstable efficiency at a lavish, ultramodern membership. The perspective switches from that of the viewers, because the digicam intently scans the etchings of the dancer’s chiseled physique, to that of the stripper himself, with round panning to simulate a rounding of the pole and a slew of the wrong way up pictures of the seated viewers.

The video’s violent crescendo (the dancer breaks by means of his glass encasement and proceeds to wreak grisly havoc on the viewers) attracts possible parallels to Justice’s personal relationship to fame, as they undoubtedly know what it’s prefer to be made a spectacle of.

“I needed the spectator of the video to seek out themselves in the identical voyeur place because the viewers attending the present: first, to seek out ourselves fascinated by the efficiency of the pole dance, then stunned and hypnotized by its final result,” says video director, Edouard Salier, who beforehand directed Justice’s “Civilization” video.
