Daft Punk's "Instant Crush" Video Makes Me Want To Cry Like Carrie On 'Homeland'

I'm gonna just come out and say that it's nice to finally see a Daft Punk song without Pharrell on it being promoted. (Actually, I guess "Doin' It Right," my favorite song off the album, was released as a single back in September? I must have missed that.)

With "Instant Crush," The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas takes on the vocals, and the video features two wax mannequins who fall in love in a museum, only to meet a fiery end. At least it happens while they're together. Which is sad. Fuck.

I feel like there are a lot of these non-real-people-falling-in-love-then-falling-apart music videos doing the rounds, from Ellie Goulding's "Midas Touch" to David Bowie's "Love Is Lost."

This one is no less of a kick in the heart.
