Daft Punk has shared a visual for the Random Access Memories cut, Instant Crush, featuring everyone’s 2001 crush, Julian Casablancas. The clip was directed by Warren Fu and was apparently inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Steadfast Tin Soldier” and The Twilight Zone.
Well, sure. I guess those could have been influences, but what this video really looks like is Night At The Museum except Ben Stiller’s character is Julian Casablancas and Julian Casablancas is a toy soldier. There’s also a love story and a fire involved. Full disclosure: I’ve never seen Night At The Museum.
