M83 – Wait

Here’s another M83 video of a song from ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ and this one is just as good, if not even better than the last one. When I first started watching this video I was only paying half attention to what was going on, but by the end of it I was saying “Wow” over and over to myself. The video uses found footage from the Sixties of a chimp taken from the wild and trained to be shot into space by NASA. The end of the video features shots of the chimp rocketing into space intercut with footage of the Vietnam War, JFK getting shot and the Civil Rights momement while M83’s song “Wait” just soars and soars into the heavens. This is so beautiful and poignant and it hits you right in the gut with emotion. I highly recommend that you watch this video. You will not regret it.
